Whewell’s Gazette: Year 2, Vol. #34

Whewell’s Gazette

Your weekly digest of all the best of

Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Cornelis Bloemaert

Year 2, Volume #34

Monday 07 March 2016

EDITORIAL:

Another week and another edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list bringing you all the histories of science, technology and medicine that we could find in cyberspace over the last seven days.

As I type this it is International Women’s Day and March is Women’s History Month so today’s edition of Whewell’s Gazette is dedicated to the women in #histSTM. When I first became interested in #histSTM women almost didn’t feature at all. Things have improved in more recent decades but we still have a long way to go. Women have played a role in #histSTM since antiquity in numerous capacities and for all too long #histSTM has been dominated almost exclusively by stories of men and their contributions, this is changing but it still needs to change more. If you blog about #histSTM include women in your blog posts, if you teach #histSTM include women in your courses, if you write about #histSTM write about women and if you talk about #histSTM talk about the women and not just the men.
