Being a Woman in Science: Changed Times?


So many female scientists have changed our understanding of the world, yet around half the population struggles to name a woman in science. Questions need to be asked! What attracts women to science, what are their experiences and why are they not more visible?

Join us for a fascinating discussion with current and former RSE Presidents, Prof Dame Anne Glover and Prof Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, and RSE Young Academy of Scotland member and recently elected RSE Fellow, Dr Silvia Paracchini as they discuss their experiences of being women in science.

Part of the Edinburgh Science Festival.

This event is now fully booked.
