Celebrating over 100 years of Activism in Women in Science and Technology
International Women’s Day Exhibition: 8th March 2013
Who was Caroline Herschel? Jane C Wright? Rosalind Franklin? Should we know who they were? As 18th century astronomer, physician and pioneer chemotherapist, and unsung biophysicist colleague of double helix discoverers Crick and Watson, they are but three of the many women high achievers but unacknowledged in the field of science and technology for centuries up to the present.
A rich collection of fascinating materials from campaigns and initiatives from the Women’s Engineering Society (established in 1918) through the WISE campaign of 1984 to the Bradford based UK Resource Centre (1991).
