Explore the career of Maria Jacson, a forgotten female botanist.

Maria Jacson was an 18th-century English writer, known for her books on botany at a time when there were significant obstacles to women's authorship.

In this lecture Sara Porter will focus on Darwin’s promotion of Maria and the impact of his botany on women.
