A while back, the National Science Foundation decided to make a concerted effort to put more deversity into science by recruiting more women. It paid off: half of all science Phds earned today are earned by women. But women in science still face some barriers.
While 50% of science Phds are awarded to women, females make up fewer than 15% of college science professors today. The show interviews female science university professors to explore the reasons behind the phenomenon.
