Women in Neuroscience

Meet the Women in Neuroscience Committee

Neuroscience is for girls (but not women – yet)

 

There is a tendency to think that the gap between the number of men and women in science is closing. However, the statistics throw up data which suggests we might conclude the opposite. It could even be that, today, the discrimination suffered by women scientists is even more subtle and difficult to perceive. On the one hand, the number of women graduates in the different university degrees has been growing continuously and, in some cases, amply exceeds the number of men. On the other hand, this data has not had any effect over the last 30 years when we look at the positions of higher responsibility and prestige in science.

👉SIN RESOLUCIÓN provisional de la 2a fase de la #FPU2021 y sin ni siquiera un plazo aproximado…

Esto, @UniversidadGob, genera mucha inquietud en personas que van a comenzar el curso pero ven imposible organizar sus vidas.
