The Theory of Exclusion

The stories of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson are told beautifully in the new Hollywood movie Hidden Figures, but there are so so many more women whose contributions to major scientific breakthroughs and to society as a whole have been omitted from history. This week, as a tribute to Nobel day, Sunna and Taylor discuss the exclusion of women from scientific discoveries and the huge discrepancy in the number of male and female Nobel laureates. They touch on who won Nobel prizes this year (spoiler alert: three women!), women who have won them in the past, and women who were never recognized for their work.

You can listen to this episode tonight at 9pm or anytime on Mixcloud.
