    The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he’s one who asks the right questions.

    Science Needs Women: 
    For Women in Science; the L’Oreal Foundation 

    I’m sharing this video on any platform I can because when I first found it last week it had something like 1,400 views, but it’s the most beautifully produced and succinctly narrated video addressing some of the most complicated issues facing women in STE(A)M fields I’ve found yet. 

    I’m sharing this for every time I’m called a “feminazi.”

    …for every time I’m told that my concerns aren’t valid, our that our issues are imagined.

    …for every time I hear “women just don’t like science,” or worse - “women just aren’t good at science.”

    …for every time we’re told that we can have a family or a career, but not both - and for every time we feel like we have to decide between the two.

    …for every time a study comes out saying as many as 64% of women endure sexual harassment during field work

    …for the fact that women earn 41% of PhD’s in STEM fields, but make up only 28% of tenure-track faculty in those fields.

    …and because we need more women mentors in these fields to stand up for issues that are not “women’s issues” - these are people issues that affect our collective society as a whole.

    The women in this video are my heroes and they should be your heroes, too.

    Science needs women.

"I have a one-and-a-half year old daughter at home. There are two things that we do every day. When I get home from work in the evening, she runs to me, and asks me to buy her a sausage. And every morning when she wakes up— at exactly 5:30 AM — she needs to go to the bathroom, and she screams for me to bring her the pot. She never screams for Mom. Just for me. How this became my job, I don’t know." (Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

    “I’ve experienced basically nothing but support after coming out. It’s actually really kind of blown my mind. I thought that there would be a lot more viciousness, but maybe that’s because you’re afraid and for some reason you have this perspective, probably because of your own anxiety. To me, that’s been the most beautiful thing because it’s so indicative of the change and growth that’s happening.”
