Women in Astronomy and the MMWISS

As you are aware, we held the first Maria Mitchell Women in Science Symposium on October 5 and 6 this year.  We had over 140 people in attendance – a sold out meeting!  Three of the attendees have just written a compilation of their impressions on the MMWISS which you can find here:


I would like to thank them for attending and for their thoughts.  Here’s to 2020!
