Women and engineering

Women engineers in the last century had two problems: first, the struggle to gain training, jobs and acceptance and second, how to use engineering to lighten women's domestic burden.

We tell the two threads of this story in this online exhibition using material from the Women's Engineering Society (WES) and the Electrical Association for Women (EAW) collections held in the IET Archives.
