Ending up in Death Research

Ruth Penfold-Mounce has been published on the up and coming blog Women are Boring. This blog and twitter account is run by Catherine Connolly and Grace McDermott both PhD students at Dublin City University. They seek to disseminate interesting research done by women and to challenge dismissal of women on multiple fronts.
