Wow, thanks for the share @john-christian! I’ve been doing some research into historical women of paleo, but had never before heard of the Newnham Quartet. This jut reinforces my desire/the need for a book about early women in paleontology!
The blog you linked to, “Letters from Gondwana,” also has a great article on historical paleobotanist Mary Stopes. You can find the article here: https://paleonerdish.wordpress.com/2015/06/22/marie-stopes-and-her-legacy-as-paleobotanist/
