Women in Science

Working in the natural sciences has, for many women, not come without its struggles. Historically, women in this field have been under-represented, but the Museum has made a great deal of progress to change this poor image over the last 40 years.

The Museum's female staff have pioneered new approaches to improve the quality of working life at the Museum, through committees and campaigns. Find out about their work to ensure equal opportunities for career development and promotion.
