Women have made many profound and brilliant breakthroughs in astronomy. However, many of their discoveries came despite substantial adversity. Even now, while progress has been made, the historic contributions of women to the field of astronomy remain less well known than those of their male colleagues. Join Rancho Mirage City Astronomer Eric McLaughlin for a fascinating, original lecture that will explore the works and the lives of some of the women who have had a dramatic impact on the way we view the universe.
