As a child Mae Jemison imagined herself reaching for the stars and that's exactly what she did: she became the first African-American woman to go into space. When Elizabeth Blackwell was told women weren't allowed to be doctors, she didn't take no for an answer. Tu Youyou spent months on a remote island during the Vietnam War to try and invent a treatment for malaria - and she did it. Including comic strips, family trees, maps and more, Fantastically Great Women Scientists and Their Stories is a celebration of women who made some of the world's most important scientific breakthroughs.

This book teaches about life and skills. It is an interesting book and I realised that women were not treated equally earlier years and should be treated with respect. They can grow their careers in any field including science. Very inspiring book and would recommend especially girls to read.

I think this book was a very interesting book and is a book that you can’t put down! If you’re interested into books about what history women created or any non fiction books, this book is for you.

I kind of liked this book. My favourite was chapter was about Caroline Herschel. She was called Cinderella by her family because she was always cleaning the house but then she became the Cinderella who swept the sky as she discovered an important comet. This was a factual story. I would recommend it to people who like to see that women have a place in their life as well as men.

I love history. This book was brilliant because it was about history but it was fun. My favourite discovery was Rosalind Franklin’s discovery of the structure of DNA. She found out that it was a Double Helix Structure.
