Sethanne Howard's research on the history of women in science

Just become aware of astronomer Dr. Sethanne Howard's book Hidden Giants, "the story of over 4,000 years of women in science and technology with short bios of over 400 women from our technical past" (

Both men and women have been active in science for thousands of years: "the very first technical name was male - Imhotep - the architect of the first pyramid. The second technical name was female - En Hedu'Anna (c.2354 BCE). Certainly women were questioners and thinkers long before that", from Dr Howard's website 4000 Years of Women in Science.
