Women's History Month: Screening of "Picture A Scientist"
Thursday, March 4, 2021 (All day) to Saturday, March 6, 2021 (All day)
In honor of Women's History Month, the University of Georgia is screening the movie "Picture A Scientist" March 4-6.
The movie 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. The website and movie trailer can be found here: www.pictureascientist.com/
In April, there will be a panel discussion to explore the themes in the film and discuss ways we can collaboratively address these important issues at UGA. Viewers of all genders are encouraged to attend.
