9781558615878: Women in Science: Then and Now

Gornick’s portraits demonstrate the driving force behind science.” The Philadelphia Inquirer

Women in science stir the contemporary imagination. In their hyphenated identity is captured the pain and excitement of a culture struggling to mature.” The Washington Post

In this newly revised twenty-fifth anniversary edition, acclaimed writer and journalist Vivian Gornick interviews famous and lesser-known scientists, compares their experiences then and now, and shows that, although not much has changed in the world of science, what is different is women’s expectations that they can and will succeed.

Everything from the disparaging comments by Harvard’s then-president to government reports and media coverage has focused on the ways in which women supposedly can’t do science. Gornick’s original interviews show how deep and severe discrimination against women was back then in all scientific fields. Her new interviews, with some of the same women she spoke to twenty-five years ago, provide a fresh description of the hard times and great successes these women have experienced.

About the Author:

Vivian Gornick is the bestselling author of the acclaimed memoir Fierce Attachments, a biography of Emma Goldman, and three essay collections: The Men in My Life, Approaching Eye Level, and The End of the Novel of Love, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Review:

"Gornick is a gifted writer and her poetic descriptions of the excitement of scientific research and the passion of those who work as scientists is inspirational. . . . This is an important book that, if anyone needed evidence, demonstrates that true equality for women, particularly in the field of scientific research, still seems so far away." The Sydney Morning Herald

"[Women in Science] opens the discussion about women's diverse problems and ambitions in science." New York Times Book Review

"It is women as subject, the women in science, rather than the women of science, that Vivian Gornick treats in a series of vignettes based on her extensive interviews with women of various ages and status in American academic life." The New York Review of Books

Strongly felt, vigorously written.” The Women’s Review of Books

Descripción Feminist Press at The City University of New York. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Women in Science: Then and Now (25th anniversary ed), Vivian Gornick, Acclaimed writer and journalist Vivian Gornick updates the ground-breaking book with new interviews. The original book asked, 'What does it mean to be a woman working in scientific research? How [does] frequently being denied funding, tenure, and opportunity affect women scientists' confidence and their perspective on the fulfilment to be found in work?'. A quarter century later, Gornick shows how far women have come and how much further they still have to go, starting with the moment when the President of Harvard chalked up the lack of women in science to 'innate differences between men and women' Gornick finds that the discrimination against women in science is stubborn and resilient.But, unfortunately, so too are female astronomers, physicists, and biochemists. She interviews famous and lesser-known scientists, and shows that while science is still widely male dominated, women's expectations for themselves have risen exponentially. The book provides a fresh description of the challenges these women have endured, and the success they've achieved. Nº de ref. de la librería B9781558615878
