‘THE “PETTICOAT PERIL” - EXPLORING WOMEN IN PHARMACY HISTORY
Members of the Retired Pharmacists’ Group are invited to attend the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Lecture in Apothecaries’ Hall on Tuesday 17th April. The lecture will be given by Briony Hudson, former Curator of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Museum and now Vice-President of the Faculty of the History and Philosophy of Medicine and Pharmacy at the Society of Apothecaries. Briony will focus on the efforts of women to gain recognition in the pharmacy profession in its early decades, investigate the impact of gender on pharmacy during the twentieth century, and consider whether it still presents challenges today.
