On 30 October 2018 the Czech Academy of Sciences will host the 5th national conference on gender and science, this time titled Science As a Vocation. The conference is organized by the National Contact Centre for Gender and Science. We are honoured that acclaimed science journalist and writer Angela Saini accepted our invitation to be the keynote speaker.
Her book Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong is being translated into Czech and should come out in September. Saini takes her readers on a journey to uncover science’s failure to understand women, while investigating gender biases in biology, psychology, and anthropology. She finds that we are still living with the legacy of an establishment that is just beginning to recover from centuries of entrenched gender exclusion and prejudice. The Czech translation will be launched on 29 October 2018, with Angela Saini in attendance.
