4000 Years of Women in Science: The History of Women in Science, Technology and other Wonderful Stuff
Sethanne Howard, PhD; US Naval Observatory, Chief of the Nautical Almanac Office, Retired; author
Science is a traditional role for women. For over 4,000 years of written history women have participated in this great human adventure. Science and technology are neither new nor difficult for women any more than they are for men. Yet missing from our textbooks and data are the fundamental contributions of scientists, both male and female but especially female. Female creativity and genius fill our technical past. The stories of these women not only provide role models for future scientists, but also they also strengthen and broaden our ability to deal with the present. This talk will cover the exciting and enchanting history of women in science and technology, where we have been, where we are, and where we are going.
