The photographs shown above bring about a different issue that has yet to be discussed. This project highlights the various ways in which the museum and the subject of Botany were accessible to women. However, it is important to discuss which groups of women would have a better opportunity over others. Intersectionality, the connected nature of social categories like race, class, and gender, needs to be addressed. The women who were a part of these finding organization were predominantly white, middle to upper middle-class women. So these spheres of the museum and the role of the funders was only accessible to a very select group of people.
