Included in The Next Big Idea Club's August 2023 Must-Read Books list

"LaFollette's effort to discuss so many of the women who struggled against misogyny and discrimination is admirable. . . . Her meticulous research will be valuable to historians of women in journalism and science writers."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Readers interested in science, journalism history, and women's studies will find inspiration in learning more about these talented pioneers."
-Library Journal

"[An] important history. . . . Writing for Their Lives gives long-overlooked science journalists the attention they richly deserve."
-Booklist

"A compelling, important historical book that also reinforces how important science journalism is right now."
--Book Riot

"Lafollette highlights not just the important work that these women performed but examines how their diverse backgrounds enhanced their science communication."
