Event description

Description

LivWiSE is excited to welcome science journalist, author and presenter Angela Saini to talk about the themes in her new book, and what they mean for women in science.

Synopsis

We hope that science is free from bias and prejudice, but its record of research on women proves that this isn't always true. In her new book, Inferior, Angela Saini interrogates what we think we know about women and why so much of it is wrong. She also explores new research that is attempting to paint a more accurate, and more empowering, portrait of women.
