(In)Visible Engineers: Remembering Forgotten Women’s Histories

NB. The authorship of this post is of students at the University of Leeds and the Electrifying Women project.

INWES is pleased to support and endorse the work being carried out by historians Graeme Gooday, Emily Rees Koerner and their students at the University of Leeds.

Interviews of INWES stories

A key element of the University of Leeds project was to create oral histories of women engineers and scientists. We connected with the International Network of Women Engineers and Scientists (INWES) and conducted interviews with 3 of its members: Mary Mwangi, Seema Singh and Roseni Dearden. An interview with a current female engineering student at the University of Leeds is also included to explore a current educational experience (as of 2022). Creating oral histories has vital importance; to ensure the preservation of the historical documentation of STEM women, and provide inspiring role models for present and future generations.
