Passion makes people take notice and realize that some things are special

With that quotation from Kathleen Carpenter (1891 to 1979) begins the exhibition “Women in Limnology” which will be displayed at the 11th Symposium for European Freshwater Sciences-SEFS11 (Zagreb, Croatia) between June 30 – July 5, 2019.

The exhibition aims to increase visibility of women in Limnology, to recognize the efforts of the pioneers, to give gender perspective to the historical development of our field, and to show the current inequalities and advances in gender biases.

Through 8 panels, the exhibition compiles  the role of women in Limnology throughout history and gives an overview of their scientific life and findings, presents profiles of women in limnology and reports their main challenges. A short documentary film shows the statements and experiences of 42 female limnologists during their career.

The exhibition was created by a group of 20 volunteers of the Gender and Science group of the Iberian Association of Limnology (AIL).
