Meet Wu Chien Shiung, a famous physicist born in 1912 who overcame prejudice to prove that she could be anything she wanted. Unlike many parents during this time period, her parents believed that girls were equal to boys and should have an education just like boys, and encouraged her to persevere despite the prejudice she experienced following her passion in physics as a woman.
Queen of Physics: How Wu Chien Shiung Helped Unlock the Secrets of the Atom is the story of Wu Chien Shiung, a woman who found her passion in physics and went on to excel in her field, all while pushing back against the prejudice she experienced as a woman with dignity and poise. Wu Chien Shiung accomplished amazing things, including performing experiments that proved beta decay and disproved the Law of Parity.
