A great place to learn about historical women in American paleontology is “Daring to Dig.” The outreach project is run by The Museum of Earth at the Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) in Ithica, New York, and was recently (Fall 2016) awarded a grant from the Museums for America program to expand the currently online program into a traveling exhibit. You can visit the program online at for a brief history of women in American paleontology, profiles on historical women in paleontology (1700s+), and profiles on current women in paleontology.
