Women in science & engineering resources & sites

4000 years of women in science is a site with some very interesting details. Did you know Beatrix Potter was also a mycologist who wrote her notes in code?
Association for Women in Science (AWIS) is open to all and supportive of women in science. While more women are getting their Ph.D.s in science, few still are in high positions that decide where funding goes, who gets awards, and who gets hired where.
Graduate Women in Science (GWIS) is also about empowering women in science. Their mission is to “advance the participation and recognition of women in science and to foster research through grants, awards, and fellowships.”
Dr. Penny Beuning keeps an excellent site of women in science and mathematics.
