To Her Credit

Reclaiming the Achievements of 40 Women (from the Men Who Took the Credit)

by Kaitlin Culmo, Emily McDermott, Kezia Gabriella
OVERVIEW

The tradition of female achievement stolen, overlooked, or just plain ignored is as old as time. Authors Kaitlin Culmo and Emily McDermott (with stunning art by Kezia Gabriella) give new life to these deserving heroines and serve up amusing (but enraging!) reminders of what we’ve lost to history as authored by an indifferent patriarchy. Remember how you learned that Cervantes “invented fiction” with Don Quixote in the 17th century? That's cool, but what about Lady Murasaki’s Tale of Genji in 11th-century Japan? Familiar with the concept of dark matter? Well, it’s pretty dark that scientist Vera Rubin made the original discovery, but only her male colleagues received the Nobel Prize. Are you a fan of Felix Mendelssohn? Then you will probably want to know that hundreds of his compositions are now suspected to have been his sister Fanny’s. Getting mad? Well, get even . . . by reading about—and effectively taking back—the amazing art, invention, and innovation of thousands of years’ worth of female achievement.
