Let’s Talk About Women in Science, March 2010

Women account for only 16 of the 539 Nobel Prizes that have been awarded in science-related fields. Is there a logical reason for this disparity? What are the complexities and societal factors at work? In 2009, three women were recognized by the Nobel committee for their scientific achievements. Are we finally moving toward a positive shift in the number of women in science? Meet three female scientists from the St. Louis area who are forging their own legacies in plant science. How did they do it, and how can more women be encouraged to contribute to this incredibly important field?

This program brings the viewer a series of in-depth discussions from leaders throughout the area on a variety of biotechnical and science subjects.
