Women in Medicine

We rated this book:


While eight-six percent of women are nurses, only thirty-three percent of doctors are women. This is difficult to understand since nursing demands much of the same dedication and study as the more lucrative field. This book hopes to interest young girls in medicine. It asks simple questions which lead to curiosity about the human body. As a part of a series of books with the theme of introducing young girls to underrepresented careers, this book has the same delightful illustrations; a young girl in ponytails who speculates on questions about her heartbeat. Like other books in this series, the author profiles outstanding women in the field of medicine who have made a difference in the lives of their patients. In that endeavor, the author goes back in history and forward to the present time. At the back of the book is a glossary of terms to simplify the reader’s understanding. This is a very necessary and worthwhile book to engage young girls in the pursuit of curiosity which is the basis of scientific endeavor.
