Description:
With entries dating from 1872 to the 21st century, this book focuses on almost two centuries of ground-breaking achievements by more than 100 women around the world. The pioneering mathematician and scientist Mary Somerville, with whose obituary the anthology begins, would have been astonished by what many of the other women remembered here achieved - not least one of the more prominent graduates of the Oxford college that was named Somerville after her - Margaret Thatcher. It also recalls the actresses, aviators, botanists, doctors, iconic British royalty, musicians, Nobel Prize winners, novelists and more.
