HOW DIFFICULT IS TO BE A WOMAN IN SCIENCE

Woman in Science sounds exciting to be. Yet there is a big part of it that is not so amazing as it sounds. Hence women in science have so many challenges to overcome, making it often impossible to actually do any science. 

For centuries now women in science are big inventors. However only limited times they take credits for their discoveries.

Even today many of them are struggling to achieve any status in science. More often they are temporary researchers who are lacking funds.    

Woman in Science has a lot to offer as long as she has the opportunities

Hopefully, this condition is changing. Now more than ever women are speaking up to claim a position in science and research.  

Firstly a lot of projects are focusing on encouraging girls in science. Yet not many actions are actually promoting women in science and employment.  

Science is not a boy's game, it's not a girl's game. It's everyone's game. It's about where we are and where we're going. Space travel benefits us here on Earth. And we ain't stopped yet. There's more exploration to come. - Nichelle Nichols

Here I am getting honest and talk to you about my challenges in science. I am telling you my story in science and how difficult it is to be part of the science community.

Finally, I am sharing my efforts to promote women in science with STEM Women Act. A local effort to raise our voices as women in STEM and create real actions in employment. If you live in Cyprus and you are a woman in STEM, join us.

It is shameful that there are so few women in science... There is a misconception in America that women scientists are all dowdy spinsters. This is the fault of men. - Chien-Shiung Wu
