Women and Science: Inspiring the next generation of scientists

⁠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. ⁠
