Women writing science: A history of science event in celebration of International Women's Day

Portrait of Caroline Lucretia Herschel

6.30 pm - 8.00 pm on Tuesday 10 March 2015 at The Royal Society, London

How did early women scientists use writing in order to further their careers?
In which ways were they limited by their gender?
What influence did subject specialisation and limited access to education have on their careers?

Join us at this free event as we celebrate International Women's Day by exploring the history of women writing about science. The event will also include a viewing of the video short Where are the women? created as part of the Philosophical Transactions 350th anniversary.
