The History of Science Museum has many wonderful objects. We also have some great paintings of illustrious scientists on our walls. Unfortunately, there are not any women amongst them.
Last year to celebrate 100 years of women getting the right to vote, we put up a series of portraits in the Basement Gallery of women, past and present.
This year, and as we move into 2020, we have decided to go one step further and create a two-part display called 'Women and Science: Inspiring the next generation of scientists', which will showcase the work of scientists, both past and present, who have made significant contributions to the realms of astronomy and astrophysics.
