Pursuit & Persistence: 300 Years of Women in Science, a new exhibition at the American Philosophical Society's Library & Museum, explores how women scientists have overcome obstacles to achieve breakthroughs, make places for themselves in science, and help others along the way. The gallery can only share a small fraction of these stories. 

In tandem with this exhibition, the APS has created a blog to highlight the lives and work of living APS Members and grant and fellowship recipients. Each month of the exhibition, four new scientists are featured.
