Ever heard of Allied spy Noor Inayat Khan, a Muslim woman whom the Nazis considered "highly dangerous"? Or German painter and entomologist Maria Sibylla Merian, who planned and embarked on the world's first scientific expedition? How about Huang Daopo, the inven­tor who fled an abusive child marriage only to revolutionize textile production in China? Women have always been able to change the world, even when they didn't get the credit. In Wonder Women, author Sam Maggs introduces you to pioneering female scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors-each profile a study in passion, smarts, and stick-to-itiveness, complete with portraits by Google doodler Sophia Foster-Dimino, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to present-day women-centric STEM organizations.
