What Women Want: From the Point of View of a Gen Y Scientista

We want people to stop telling us that we aren’t innately interested in science. We tire of the benevolent sexism we receive, like being told that it’s “cool” that we wear dresses and make-up, as if femininity and science must contradict each other at some fundamental level. We want to be able to do research not in isolation, but in collaboration. We want to be able to form study groups in our male dominated classes without being left out for not being “one of the guys.”
