You are looking at articles about Role Models

In many societies, it is easier for a male to reach a senior position in research and policy than it is for a female. To help overcome this gender bias, SciDev.Net has launched Role Models – a series of articles profiling successful female innovators and scientists. This will give aspiring young female researchers the proof that they can achieve as much as their male counterparts, and also highlight the barriers faced by women.

If you can think of a successful woman that we should include in the series, please let us know at [email protected]. OR [email protected]
