It’s a new generation of scientists--and women are finally on center stage!
Picture a Scientist documents the journeys of Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring, exploring their experiences in STEM. Their triumphs are celebrated, and their trials--ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights--are analyzed. Throughout the documentary, social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists weigh in, providing new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
