Today’s Topic: Freebie

Looking through my Goodreads lists, one thing is clear. Either I don’t read enough books featuring female scientists or there just aren’t enough stories portraying women in STEM fields.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, since it accurately reflects real life numbers, where these fields are still overwhelmingly filled with men. Perhaps if women could read more stories of female scientists, they might be inspired and be able to envision themselves pursuing careers in these fields. One thing is for sure, it’s much easier in today’s world for a woman to pursue a career in science than it has been in years past. Thankfully.

Now that you speak of it, I haven’t read many books about female scientists either. We definitely need more of them.

Glad you agree!
The Love Note has such a pretty cover.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I thought so too. It’s what first caught my eye.
What a great topic! Thanks for sharing! Here is my link for this week: https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2021/09/top-ten-tuesday-20-books-for-christmas.html
A great topic! The only book I can think of that I’ve read recently that featured a woman in a STEM career was Get a Life Chloe Brown, as she is a computer “geek”.

I definitely need to read more books with female scientists in them too.

loved your topic!! and while I know I have read books with women in STEM fields, I simply cannot recall them.. Now I am tempted and inspired to make note of them.. but even without doing so, I know we need more such books..
