Marsha Richmond, a science historian at Wayne State University, tells the stories of influential women who have been celebrated as scientific trailblazers, as well as those whose opportunities and work were denied and repressed.

Richmond is joined by Grace Costantino of Smithsonian Libraries’ Biodiversity Heritage Library, who highlights featured works by women scientists in the library’s collection.

An optional tour of the Natural History Museum’s rare books collection is available for sign up.
