Series of livecasts 'Celebrating 100 years of Women's Membership of The Physiological Society'

The final event in our 2015 calendar of activities 'Celebrating 100 years of Women's Membership of The Physiological Society' was on Wednesday 2 December.

A global audience joined us virtually at Hodgkin Huxley House, the home of The Society, in this exclusive series of live cast interactive sessions.

We brought together a group of inspirational women to recognise and celebrate achievements, and also address challenges, and to look to the future.

The aim was to inspire the current, and also the next, generation and promote women in science.
