Lady Science is an independent magazine focusing on women, gender, and science in history and popular culture. The project was founded by two historians of science, Leila A. McNeill and Anna Reser. Each month, we publish three original, researched essays about the history of science, focusing on the margins and the marginalized. Our work explores the intersections of science, technology, and medicine and how women participate in, interact with, and are impacted by these fields. We mainly focus on history, but we also cover pop culture, relevant current events, and academia. 

Lady Science has a number of recurring expenses that we need help with in order to continue and expand the project. We're on Patreon to raise funds for our hosting and domain fees and capital for merchandise we'd like to make, and to endow a scholarship for women graduate students in history of science to attend conferences. We currently syndicate our content with The New Inquiry, which is how we pay our contributors. If we meet our funding goals, we'll be able to pay our writers on our own increasing the per-article fee, commission blog posts, and perhaps even distribute small stipends for our team.

Goals
$647 of $650 per month
At $650 we'll publish a special pop culture series on a topic voted for by Patrons! We'll produce a special month of content on a pop culture topic that you help us select. 

Any increase in patronage allows us to expand and refine the magazine at every level. We can raise fees for the writing we commission, publish our content independently, hire more staff and contributing editors, fund scholarships, fellowships, and other opportunities for emerging feminist writers. Above all, sustaining patronage is also the gift of flexibility, and frees up vital time and creative energy that we would otherwise spend on an annual fundraising campaign.
