Welcome to my website Shells and Women. 

On this site you will find a blog about Tera van Benthem Jutting, her life and her work. You can enjoy browsing through her letter archive, her diaries and her lecture notes. You can see which shells she named, which articles she wrote and which scientists she interacted with.
