At a time when women had little to do with the study of science or mathematics, Mary Somerville took to both and did her best to teach others as well. Mary Somerville was barred by statute from being made a Fellow of the Royal Society, but a bust of her was placed in the entrance hall. A ship was named for her, a college at the University of Oxford, poems were dedicated to her, and today her face is on a Scottish banknote. Discover more about this determined and courageous woman, who entered a sphere regarded as ‘unfeminine’ and left us all a lasting legacy.
