Presented by Shobhana Narasimhan, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research

Narashima will discuss how women scientists in the developing world face a unique set of challenges. Besides coping with limited resources, they also face societal constraints imposed by their gender. She will also explore statistics that show how some developing countries have a higher proportion of women scientists than economically developed nations. This event is part of the "Girl Power in STEM: Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change!" Symposium (March 8-9) sponsored by BWIS and Stony Brook University Women in Science and Engineering.
