Woman Watching Book

“I started following the Feminist Bird Club, a birding group that has chapters all across the world. They recently hosted a fantastic zoom lecture by author Merilyn Simonds on her book Woman, Watching about the history of naturalist Louise de Kiriline Lawrence and women in Ornithology in the late 1800s to early 1900s. I downloaded the free library app Libby and have been reading it and the fascinating history of how amateur birders contributed vast amounts of data and research to the field even while being snubbed by scientific communities.” - Lynsey
