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.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

To maintain the safety of our members, volunteers, staff and everyone we work with, we have taken the decision to cancel or postpone ALL IET events until the end of June. We are monitoring the rapidly changing situation and will provide further updates when we have them. If you have any queries, please contact events@theiet.org or view the more detailed statement on the IET homepage.
