Thirst for Knowledge: A history of women's roles in science at the Otago Museum

Collecting ferns to arrange in albums or painting flowers were leisurely pastimes for young ladies in the nineteenth-century, but that’s not all that happened.

This month, Dr Rosi Crane from Otago Museum will share some of the historical discoveries she has made while uncovering women's participation in the Museum, including Josephine Gordon Rich, one of the few women to publish original scientific research.
