Feminism and Science: “Women In Science” and “A Galaxy of Her Own” Book Review

I wanted to share with you, two amazing books I was gifted. As some of you may know from my previous collaboration infographic, I am a feminist.

Muggle Musings started in February of this year, and since then there have been so many brilliant insights and anecdotes I never would have thought of myself. I’ve already done a little highlights post about some of our more outrageous claims but I wanted to be more focused and show just how deep we delve into the books themselves!
