Where are the Women in Australian Science provides information about women and the roles they played in the history of Australian science, technology and medicine from the earliest periods of European engagement to the present day. The exhibition links to biographical, bibliographical and archival information held in the Encyclopedia of Australian Science database.

This exhibition is a project of the National Foundation for Australian Women and the Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre of the University of Melbourne. Work on this project was generously funded by a 2002-2003 capacity building grant under the Women's Development Programme administered by the Commonwealth Office of the Status of Women.
