The Booles were no ordinary family. The father, George Boole, was a famous mathematician, now known as the ‘father of the computer age’. The mother, Mary Everest, taught herself maths and wrote books on algebra, at a time when girls weren’t even meant to know maths at all. As for the four Boole daughters, they all achieved remarkable things. Alicia became the first female Professor of Chemistry in England, even though she never went to university! And Ethel wrote the famous revolutionary novel The Gadfly, which made her a hero in Russia. Showing what women could do at a time when suffragettes were fighting for women’s rights, the Boole sisters made an unforgettable mark…
