Under the microscope: Why we need more female scientists
Women have historically been underrepresented in the field of science, and this lack of diversity has had significant consequences for the advancement of science and technology. Here are a few reasons why we need more female scientists:
To address the gender bias in science
Studies have shown that women in science face numerous barriers and biases, including a lack of access to resources, lower pay and advancement opportunities, and fewer chances to collaborate with leading researchers. By increasing the number of female scientists, we can work to address these biases and create a more inclusive and equitable scientific community.
By having a more diverse range of perspectives and experiences, we can help to identify and eliminate the unconscious bias that exists in the field.
