Directly after the AGM, WOMEESA are thrilled to sponsor and host a virtual screening of PICTURE A SCIENTIST https://www.pictureascientist.com – a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all. Thanks to Anna Petts for co-ordinating this.
The film runs for 97 minutes and so the remaining time will be used for a short online discussion.
When: Thursday 19th November, 10.30 am – 12.30 pm AEDT
