More women are likely to be found at the forefront of leading scientific research than ever before but the gap between men and women’s pay, research funding and published papers is still marked, with more than 6 times as many men than women in the fields of science and technology. Are women doing enough to encourage their female peers? Are the structures of research and academia still weighted towards men and does it matter? Do we need women at the top? How have women changed science?
To celebrate the achievements of women in science and to discuss their continuing under-representation we will be joined by some of Britain’s brightest thinkers: Professor Uta Frith (Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL), Professor Carol V Robinson (Royal Society Professor, Department of Chemistry,University of Oxford), Professor Mary Collins (Dean of Life Sciences, UCL), Professor Dame Sally C Davies (Chief Scientific Officer, Department of Health) and Liliane Lijn (NASA artist in residence) and chairing the evening will be Vivienne Parry (science writer and BBC Radio 4 broadcaster).
Each ticket comes with a free copy of the Suffrage Science publication put together by MRC
