Stanford Earth Celebrates Women's History Month/Movie Night: Picture a Scientist

This event is over.

Event Details:

Join us for this movie night to celebrate Women's History Month and watch the documentary Picture a Scientist. While this is a social event created to increase a sense of community, we see this as an opportunity to enhance awareness of gender bias and institutional discrimination in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.

PICTURE A SCIENTIST is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring (faculty at Stanford Earth!!!) 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.

Don't forget to RSVP!
