Rise of the Rocket Girls
Rise of the Rocket Girls The Women Who Propelled Us, From Missiles to the Moon to Mars By Holt, Nathalia, 1980- Book - 2016

The book does a better job than most in explaining the math (I finally know why data reduction might not be someone's favorite assignment) though it does get some of the old technology wrong (how data was encoded on punch cards, for example). I think the parts about marriages and clothes were important because most women at the time did not have the choice of being both ladies and nerds, as hard as balancing those roles could be.
