By: Philippa Hardman

Interesting blog from the Darwin and Gender project that shows Darwin giving support to early biologist and feminist. Excerpt: Given his views on women’s intellect and their corresponding social role, Darwin’s correspondence with Lydia Becker comes as something of a surprise. Becker was a leading member of the suffrage movement, perhaps most well known for publishing the Women’s Suffrage Journal between 1870 and 1890. She was also a successful biologist, astronomer and botanist and, between 1863 and 1877, an occasional correspondent of Charles Darwin."

Great site on Darwin's voyage on the HMS Beagle, with chronology, news, related links. Could be used in a classroom setting to follow the voyage in real time.
