Women in Astronomy Resource Guide

Women in Astronomy Resource Guide

This annotated resource guide to finding information about the contributions of women
to astronomy includes general references on the contributions of women and the challenges facing them, together with specific references to the work and lives of women astronomers of the past and present.

The guide grew out of a need in college and high school astronomy courses.  Many students like to do a paper or report on the work of women (or one woman) in astronomy.  But the resources for doing such papers are scattered in many places and were hard to track down. We hope the resource guide will make the task of learning about the contributions of women to space science a little bit easier.
