Visionary Women: Ann Lowe, Anna Atkins, Mary Anning, and Maria Sibylla Merian
Visionary women who pursued their dreams and changed the world.

Visionary women have always been among us. Women have contributed to science, history, philosophy, medicine, and art long before they were admitted to scholarly societies or universities. Many were denied recognition for their expertise because they were young because they were not formally educated, because they were poor, because of their race, and because they were female. The limitations of people’s imagination, however, did not hold back those who were determined to make a difference. Women like Ann Lowe, Mary Anning, Anna Atkins, and Maria Merian, were committed to their work, overcame barriers and made history in their respective fields.
