A discussion event will be held at the Royal Society of Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival.

So many female scientists have changed our understanding of the world, yet around half the population struggles to name a woman in science. Questions need to be asked!

What attracts women to science, what are their experiences and why are they not more visible?

Join The RSE for a fascinating discussion with current and former RSE Presidents, Prof Dame Anne Glover and Prof Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell and RSE Young Academy of Scotland member Dr Silvia Paracchini as they discuss their experiences of being women in science.

Part of the Edinburgh Science Festival.
