This meeting will focus on the lives, work and stories of less well-known women who have made significant contributions to the life and earth sciences, whether as female virtuosi/ amateurs or as pioneering professionals. Participants can register for both one or two days. http://shnh.org.uk/news/cfp-women-history-natural-science-june-2017/
