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 3, Volume #09

Monday 17 October 2016

EDITORIAL:

 Another week, another edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list bringing to its readers all of the histories of science, technology and medicine that could be swept together out of the depths of cyberspace.

Last Tuesday saw the return of the yearly celebration of women in STEM, Ada Lovelace Day. It is a sad reflection that in the twenty-first century we still need to make people aware of the fact that women are not treated equally in the STEM disciplines, despite the many proofs delivered by numerous women in the twentieth century that they are in every way the equal to their male colleagues.

As usually the Internet #histSTM community was well represented on this day with some new posts and articles and the reposting of some old ones and as usual in what could almost said to be a tradition we have collected together as many of these posts and articles as we could find and present them here for your perusal.

It is to be hoped at some not all to distant point in the future that the necessity for an Ada Lovelace Day will have become superfluous, unfortunately it doesn’t look as though this will be the case anytime soon. Until it is Whewell’s Gazette will continue to support and encourage those who valiantly strive to raise the awareness of the role that women have played in #histSTM
