These biographies explore the contributions of women to the sciences, detailing the paths that led these women to break gender barriers. A pioneer in both astronomy and women's rights, Mitchell followed a path of self-education to achieve her goal of becoming an astronomer. She went on to become the first woman ever to identify a new comet and the first professor of astronomy at Vassar.
