Event description

Description

At the same time as women were fighting to get the vote, many of the same women were battling to become professional engineers in a very male workplace. Dr Baker will share highlights from her years of research into the hidden histories of these pioneering women engineers. Some great stories of the battles they faced to be taken seriously and of their engineering achievements.

2019 is the centenary of the foundation of the Women’s Engineering Society and this talk is part of the society’s centenary celebrations.

A FREE event but booking essential as spaces are limited.

This is a WES2019 talk for the Dundee Women's Festival
