International Day for Girls and Women in Science

February 11 is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The 2021 Theme is “Beyond the Borders: Equality in Science for Society.” Find our more here.

This is a delightful book by author and illustrator Rachel Ignotofsky.

February 11 is also my mother’s birthday. She wanted to be a scientist but had little support from her family. She married before she finished nurse’s training and soon all her energy was devoted to raising four children. In spite of her difficulties, she left the world a better place than the way she found it.
