International Women's Day

Nothing really new, but I've discovered that old posts I did for the Wellcome Library blog, 2008-2015, are still available courtesy of the Wayback Machine.

This is the one I did for IWD 2013: Paying attention to what women say:

International Women’s Day seems a good time to commemorate two amazing (and long-lived!) women doctors and researchers whose major breakthroughs were the result of listening to what women told them and paying attention to the implications.

Their work reflects not only their own achievements as women scientists, but a willingness to pay attention to and to value what women were telling them about their own experiences.

Another post with a bit more detail about the amazing Alice Stewart and her papers.
