이공계 여성 연구자들의 고정관념(stereotype)을 깨기 위한 사진과 글입니다. 특정한 이미지가 없다는 뜻은 거꾸로 여성 누구나 관심과 의지가 있다면 연구자가 될 수 있다는 의미와도 같습니다.
What do you see when you picture a scientist? Is it a white man in a lab coat? This portrait will smash that stereotype to bits.
Everywhere you look, odds appear stacked against women in STEM. Young male scientists receive up to twice as much funding as their female counterparts in Boston’s biomedical research institutions, a global research hub. Only 30% of the world’s researchers are women, and women hold fewer than 25% of STEM jobs in the US. In fact, one recent survey found 67% of Europeans and 93% of Chinese respondents don’t even believe women have the skills to do science — and Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Tim Hunt thinks women cause “trouble” in the lab.
