Science Week: ‘Ladies of Science’
14 Nov 2016 : Laura Brennan
As a part of the celebrations of Science Week, ‘Ladies of Science: The Extraordinary Story of Mary Ward and Mary Rosse’ will be shown on RTÉ One tonight at 11.35pm

A drama documentary, set in Ireland, tells the true story of two remarkable women, Lady Mary Rosse and Mary Ward, who had a passion for science and technology including photography, astronomy, microscopy, illustrations, architecture, all during a time (1850′s) when women were not admitted to universities.

‘Ladies Of Science’ will include dramatizations and contributions from the Earl of Rosse, Brendan Parson and his wife Allison, together with several leading experts in science, literature, engineering, astronomy, photography and history, explore the fascinating achievements of these two pioneering women.

Narrated by actress and author Lalla Ward, a great granddaughter of Mary Ward, the film includes details on the building of the Great Telescope in Birr, (which was the biggest telescope in the world for almost 100 years) and the tragic death of Mary Ward in 1869, when she unfortunately became the first woman in Europe to die from a car accident.

Dedicated to all women who aspire for recognition and equal opportunities in today’s society, the achievements of these ‘Ladies of Science’, is an example par excellence to follow.  

Made by SnugBor Films and directed by Alessandra Usai and produced by Liam Grant.

In 2015 ‘Ladies of Science’ was presented with the Capra Award for Best Documentary Short Film at the Life Fest Film Festival in Sacramento, California.

‘Ladies of Science: The Extraordinary Story of Mary Ward and Mary Rosse’ will be shown on RTÉ One tonight at 11.35pm.
