Museums' Women remembered

By: Zongezile Matshoba
As South Africa celebrates Women's Day on 9 August, Albany Museum remembered all women in the museum sector for their various contributions.

Following the recent profiling of the only two women Directors in the history of Albany Museum, other women in various areas were profiled. These range from those in the general work sphere to the most specialised research sphere.

Despite the severe shortage of staff, and under funding, women continued to feature in the administration, finance, education, curatorship and research areas of many museums. Many are also at the forefront of museums organised structures like the South African Museums Association (SAMA).

A glimpse of this profile is in all the notice boards of the Natural Science Museum, History Museum and Observatory Museum.
