Yesterday Hadiza Mohammed from Women Rock Science gave a talk at my school. How women have been treated in scientific history is ridiculous. Some had their genders changed, others had male colleagues take credit for their work and far too many only got acknowledgement after they had died.
Flicking through my Physics textbook there is no mention of a single woman anywhere. The authors couldn’t include one woman who has contributed to Physics? There are so many, such as Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Rosalind Franklin, Helen Czerski and a simple Google search would bring up several others.
We are often told there are not enough women in STEM, but what is the point of having more when we are ignoring the ones that are already there.
Hello, its Hadiza here! I had soooo much fun talking at your school. You were all a brainy switched on bunch. If you want me to talk at your school tell your teachers and contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
I stick my head through the shower curtain and lick peoples bums while they aren’t looking.
They make this sound like a bad thing?
