Women in Science Now: Stories and Strategies for Achieving Equity

Hardcover

Price: $24.95

Overview

Women working in the sciences face obstacles at virtually every step along their career paths. From subtle slights to blatant biases, deep systemic problems block women from advancing or push them out of science and technology entirely.

Women in Science Now examines solutions to this persistent gender gap, offering new perspectives on how to make science more equitable and inclusive for all. This book shares stories and insights of women from a range of backgrounds working in various disciplines, illustrating the journeys that brought them to the sciences, the challenges they faced along the way, and the important contributions they have made to their fields. Lisa M. P. Munoz combines these narratives with a wealth of data to illuminate the size and scope of the challenges women scientists face, while highlighting research-based solutions to help overcome these obstacles. She presents groundbreaking studies in social psychology and organizational behavior that are informing novel approaches for combating historic and ongoing inequities.

Through a combined focus on personal experiences and social-science research, this timely book provides both a path toward greater gender equity and an inspiring vision of science and scientists.

Reviews
Women in Science Now manages to be both rigorous and intimate. Munoz flawlessly combines first-person accounts of scientists with empirical research to illuminate the problem of representation in science and offer multi-tiered solutions. The result is an invaluable resource that I will refer to often as a mentor, administrator, and a woman in science myself.–Vanessa Bohns, Department Chair and Professor of Organizational Behavior, Cornell University, and author of You Have More Influence Than You Think
