They have knowledge, experience, and degrees. They work hard on their research at prestigious universities and scientific institutions. They are ambitious. The face discrimination, sexual harassment, and neglect. They are the women of science.
The statistics are merciless—there are far less women in science than men. And even though we live in the 21st century, science is still associated mostly with men. This feature documentary lets female scientists share their experience which might shed some light on the unflattering statistic. Their stories include harassment, explicit physical violence, and struggle for appropriately sized labs. But they also show ways to make science an accessible and safe place for everyone.
