One of they key factors discouraging young women from pursuing STEM careers is a lack of visible role models.
Help unlock this hidden history, during the week of International Women’s Day. The Woman’s Engineering Society are crowd funding to digitalise and make accessible to all their monthly journals dating back to 1919. The journals provide a wealth of knowledge not only on women in engineering, and the growth of the sector since WW1, but are also an extremely interesting insight into attitudes and debates of the time – what has and has not changed.
