"Shohini Ghose's book Her Space, Her Time: How Trailblazing Women Scientists Decoded the Hidden Universe certainly fulfills its subtitle. The seven chapters are highly informative, each one having dramatic moments and discoveries. Ghose skillfully weaves together accessible descriptions of astrophysical concepts with the personal lives of the women scientists. I recommend this book as required reading for anyone teaching astronomy and astrophysics, as well as those with an amateur interest . . . By writing this book, Ghose is doing the work of rectifying some of these past wrongs."
--American Scientist

"A disdain for misogyny past and present shines through in Shohini Ghose's rich history of women's underappreciated contributions to astronomy and physics . . . Her Space, Her Time [has] made an important contribution to this chain of histories, one that will no doubt lead to a clearer view of the science that lit up our universe."
--New Scientist

"This book is truly for everyone, and I can't overstate how much I enjoyed it."
