Documentary Picture a Scientist at the UdG

Last 7th of March, the IQCC organized a meeting to show the documentary Picture a Scientist to highlight gender inequality in science during the Week of International Woman’s Day.


The film tells the stories of several prominent female researchers and brings to light the barriers that they encountered, including cases of discrimination and harassment. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks and geologist Jane Willenbring take viewers on an in-depth journey into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal bullying to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from small labs to spectacular fieldwork, we meet scientific luminaries – including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists – who provide new perspectives on how to make science more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
