Indian women have had a strong presence in the sciences for well over a century. Yet much of their remarkable achievements and contributions to the development of the science in India have either largely been ignored nor given due attention. The story of Indian women scientists has been one of struggle. Overarching social structure, uneasy access to education, discrimination and opposition in homes, study and workplaces contributed mainly to the impediment of the progress of women in science. The road paved by some of the pioneering women scientists, has today, to a large extent cemented the path for future generation, to fulfill their scientific ambitions.
This book, a major contribution to the study of history of science in India, is culled from various sources including newspapers, journals, travelogues and dissertations.
