Resources/Info on contributions of minorities and women to science

  1. Apr 16, 2014 #1
    Hi all,

    I want to read and learn about the contributions minorities and women have made to science so that I can highlight these contributions when I teach and be aware of them. I really am not sure where to look for this information, though.

    I was hoping some people on here might be able to point me in the direction of books, articles, or other resources that would provide me with information on contributions of minorities and women to science - any chance you all could please help me with this?

    Please, I'm just asking for resources, I'm not here to start a debate, make things emotional, etc.. I searched for other posts on this, and I found one that immediately became a charged discussion. Would really like to avoid that (also didn't exactly provide resources, just some names). I've read about the importance of making education culturally relevant, and as someone who plans on teaching soon, I'd like to be more aware of the contributions of other cultures to science.

    Thank you!
