Dr Jennifer Nichols was one of twelve women honoured for their outstanding contributions to science at Suffrage Science: 2013. This year focused on women in engineering and the physical sciences related to medicine.

Descendants of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, great-granddaughter Helen and her daughter Laura, presented the women with bespoke heirloom textiles in the form of bracelets. The women will soon also receive bespoke heirloom jewellery – a gesture harking back to days when handcrafted jewellery was presented to noted women of the suffrage movement.
