- Trowelblazers: Women in Archaeology, Geology and Palaeontology: TrowelBlazers is a celebration of women archaeologists, palaeontologists and geologists who have been doing awesome work for far longer, and in far greater numbers, than most people realise. Because we think these women are awesome. We think you’ll think these women are awesome. And we want to keep on discovering more awesome trowel-wielding women. Plus, so many of the pictures are, quite frankly, a-MAZ-ing.

Gender and Science
- Professor Athene Donald’s Blog: I am a professor of physics in the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge working on soft matter and biological physics. I have an active interest in issues around women in science within the university (WiSETI ) and outside (Athena Forum) and equality and diversity more generally; and a growing interest in education and science policy. I hold a variety of positions on committees etc, but this blog is written in a purely personal capacity. Recent posts include: ‘Life skills I wish I possessed’ and ‘Who isn’t an imposter?
Women in Science
- L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science: The very first program of its kind, L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science was founded in 1998 in the firm belief that the world needs science and science needs women. For this reason, every year the program identifies, rewards, encourages and spotlights women from every continent whose discoveries have contributed to the advancement of scientific knowledge.
