Women and girls take a leading role in Qbit and the Keepers of the Blue Planet so I thought I would expand on that valuable theme. I like to read, so I thought it would nice to include books about women who have made contributions in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
I’ll include books I’ve read and some I haven’t.
