women in science LSE 

Women in Science: Past, Present and Future Challenges was an event held on Tuesday night, open and free to all, to prompt a discussion on the challenges faced by women in science. Why are women under-represented, and what can be done about it? How do the challenges faced by women in science today differ from those faced by previous generations? Does the neuroscience of sex differences show that science requires a ‘male brain’, or does it debunk that idea? And how might the structure and culture of science be improved to help the next generation of female scientists?
