The Mighty Women Of Science: Alphabet Book
By (author) Clare Forrest and Fiona Gordon
Clare Forrest’s Mighty Women of Science is a playful and enlightening look at some well known – and some not so well known – women who have and continue to change the world of science. Exploring A for Astronaut to Z for Zoologist, The Mighty Women of Science is a colourful and engaging all ages book.
The Mighty Women of Science began as a self-published zine by creator Clare Forrest. With help form friend Fiona Gordon and Kate Livingston the zine she created became The Mighty Women of Science alphabet book. Having worked in communicating science, Clare began to see that women were largely written out of the history of science. She began collating the life stories and work of some of the most influential and underrated female scientists. Forrest’s alphabet book begins with the story of its creation and a time machine, naturally. Once back in time Clare and Fiona begin to detail the achievements of women in science from astronaut Valentina Tereshkova to Zoologist Birute Galdikas. This immersive all ages book is a great learning tool or simply a great way to start your journey learning about The Mighty Women of Science.
