Back in January I was in North Carolina to participate in the Borafest—that is, Science Online 2011. The main reason for going was a little project cooked up with Jenny Rohn and Karen James. To wit: we wanted to film some women scientists who might be just as capable as any man at presenting sciencey-type programmes: the next female David Attenborough, if you like.
Here, then, is the fruit of that project. A film (in two parts, because YouTube won’t let me upload more than 15 minutes at a time), with some very interesting and articulate characters:
The brave women in these videos are: Holly Bik; Sara Imari Walker (@ImariSara); Betul Kacar Arslan (@BetulKArslan); Olivia Koski; Pascale Lane (@PHLane); Karen Ventii and of course, Meg Lowman (@CanopyMeg). Enjoy!
