A Lab of Her Own: Women in Science (27872) | Dr. Nurit Kirsch

 Women have traditionally comprised a minority within the scientific community. In this course we shall analyze the difficulties and challenges of women in science, and discuss the myriad ways in which women succeeded in acting in a competitive framework defined by a male ethos. We shall focus on historical processes responsible for the widening of opportunities in science for women, as well as on sociological perspectives on this process.
