Women’s History Month Movie Screening: Picture a Scientist
The University of Georgia is hosting a free online movie screening March 4 – 6 of the film “Picture a Scientist” in celebration of Women’s History Month. Register here to participate in the free viewing. A panel discussion will follow in April (details forthcoming).
PICTURE A SCIENTIST is a feature-length 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.
