"A woman's place is in the dome!"
Marylou West

There are three categories of women astronomers on this site: historical, current professional, and amateur women astronomers. All the women listed on this page have their own page on this web site. Please visit our links page for a list of other women astronomers.

Also listed on this page are links to available job listings for professional astronomers and a couple of reports on the status of women in astronomy.
