Who

As part of the Sedgwick Museum's Feminist Takeover Weekend, join artist and geologist Emma Theresa Jude for an incredible introduction to the history of women in the fields of palaeontology and geology. Introducing wide-ranging themes through a guided tour of the incredible Sedgwick Museum (an early seat of women in palaeontology), from hidden stories of female scientists whose work has been relegated to the footnotes of history, to the current challenges facing women in the field today. From the first female geologists like Martine Bertereau, Mary Anning and Etheldred Bennet to our very own Mary McKenny Hughes and Gertie Elles, we'll be asking the difficult questions along the way.

This is a free event but booking is required
