Electrifying Women: 5 Key Themes

Women have played a long and important role in engineering. In the UK, the Women’s Engineering Society was founded in 1919, but even before then there are examples of women working in engineering roles. This series highlights five of the key themes in the history of women in engineering. It looks at how women who carved a place for themselves in engineering (and beyond) have collaborated and innovated; how they have used their resources and created lasting networks; and been effective activists.

Each video is accompanied by a downloadable further information sheet.
