Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book series about women who spoke up and rose up against the odds--including Rosalind Franklin!
Rosalind Franklin loved science, but that wasn't a field many women were included in when she was young. Still, she persisted in pursuing her dreams, and conducted vital research on both coal and viruses. She also played a key role in the discovery of the double-helix structure of DNA, though her male colleagues took credit for her work.
In this chapter book biography by bestselling and award-winning author Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, readers learn about the amazing life of Rosalind Franklin--and how she persisted.
Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton, black-and-white illustrations throughout, and a list of ways that readers can follow in Rosalind Franklin's footsteps and make a difference!
And don’t miss out on the rest of the books in the She Persisted series, featuring so many more women who persisted!
