Speaker : CAA

Astronomy has mostly been a male dominated science. It was less than 200 years ago that women started to work at observatories, not as observers, but as computers working on the observations of their male counterparts. Things have changed slowly, in the UK only 16% of the astronomers are female (although in Argentina it is 40%!) although the percentage gets bigger each year.

We will be looking at some of the successful women in astronomy.
