Summary "Smart women have always been able to achieve amazing things, even when the odds were stacked against them.

Plus, interviews with real-life women in STEM careers, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to women-centric science and technology organizations--all to show the many ways the geeky girls of today can help to build the future,"--Amazon.com.
