Big Think: Women in Science

There have been previous posts on here in reference to the issue of women in science.  The Larry Summers comments a while back have stirred this debate up in recent years, and I thought maybe some of you would be interested in a new video series on Big Think, in which they are interviewing women scientists.  This is the first of the series, a brief clip of Dr. Bonnie Bassler of Princeton University, discussing what it’s like to be a female scientist. 

In other news, I encourage you to read more about what Big Think is and does.  It’s a pretty cool site that encourages users to make video feedback to the interviews they have with the famous intellectuals and other popular talking heads.  Enjoy!
