Despite the Odds: Essays on Canadian Women and Science

Edited by Marianne Ainley

This is the first book to address the status of Canadian women in the sciences from a historical and contemporary perspective. Essays on women in medicine, sociology, pharmacy and the natural sciences provide insights about our pioneer women scientists. Contemporary concerns are examined such as the career goals of female science students, gender separatism, and feminist research into genetic hazards in the workplace.
