Ghosts of women past: Women in science

Unfortunately I can't go to this free lecture because it clashes with a meeting, but I thought other Londoners might be interested in attending.

When: Friday 18 February, 1-2 PM
Who: Dr Patricia Fara, Clare College, Cambridge
Where: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG
