International Women's Day 2017

International Women's Day 2017

Wed 8 — Thurs 30 Mar 2017

10.00 am — 3.00 pm
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (find us)
John Hope Gateway / Library Foyer, Science Buildings
No booking required

The exhibition represents the work of women across RBGE and each story highlights the contribution that the women have made to their chosen field.    The theme of International Women’s Day 2017 is “Be Bold For Change”. Whether it is as pioneers in their field or by visiting far-flung parts of the world to discover new species, there can be no doubt that the RBGE women achieve this.


The natural world is increasingly under threat and we need people to pursue careers in botany, horticulture and conservation.  We hope that these images will inspire young women and girls by demonstrating that there is a place for them in the science and horticulture sectors.
