The nearly forgotten history and complex career paths of the first Canadian women scientists
Marianne Gosztonyi Ainley (1937-2008) was principal of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute at Concordia University, as well as dean of Women's Studies at the University of Northern British Columbia. Marelene Rayner-Canham is a retired instructor in Physics and Geoff Rayner-Canham is a professor of Chemistry at the Grenfell Campus of Memorial University. They are co-editors of A Devotion to their Science: Pioneer Women of Radioactivity and co-authors of Harriet Brooks: Pioneer Nuclear Scientist.
"It offers a comprehensive treasury of valuable biographical information, accompanied by many analytical insights, for anyone interested in the history of women in science." Historical Studies in Education "Creating Complicated Lives provides an essential historical backdrop to the current debates about ``women and science.'' It is my hope that a new generation of scholars will pick up this research agenda and contribute to the expansion of the history of women scientists in Canada, a field to which the name of Marianne G. Ainley is inextricably linked." Canadian Historical Review
