Sixth Form Lecture: Electrifying Women – The Long History of Women in Engineering

November 7 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

- Free

Professor Graeme Gooday & Emily Rees – School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science – University of Leeds


One hundred years ago, the very first Women’s Engineering Society (WES) was founded in Britain – a society which is still active today – yet Britain now has one of the lowest rates of women engineers in Europe. This lecture will debunk the myth that women have always been excluded from engineering by highlighting the rich and varied contributions of women to the field since the late Victorian era, including pioneering inventions and patents.
