Georgina Rippon on feminism

"Science can be good for feminism and feminism can be good for science"

- Georgina Rippon, writing in The Guardian

In a recent feature, three researchers of three different "generations" gave their views about what it means to be a scientist and a feminist. According to Rippon, a professor of cognitive neuroimaging at Aston University, UK, it's a win-win situation. Having the scientific facts to hand about gender differences in scientific aptitude (or lack thereof) can help battle unhelpful stereotypes. Meanwhile, a feminist approach to the scientific career can help open doors to women who might otherwise not succeed. You can read all of Rippon's essay, and those of the two other researchers, here.
