As a child, Mae Jemison imagined herself reaching for the stars: she became the first African-American woman to go into space. When Elizabeth Blackwell was told women weren't allowed to be doctors, she didn't take no for an answer. Tu Youyou spent months on a remote island during the Vietnam War to try to invent a treatment for malaria - and found one. With comic strips, family trees, maps and more, this is a celebration of the women who made some of the world's most important scientific breakthroughs.
