Awe-inspiring Women in STEM books

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11 allows us to honour women’s significant achievements in science and place a much-needed focus on girls entering Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers. One of the best ways to support them is to know their names and buy their work, where possible. So here’s some of the best books written by women in STEM.
