Inferior: Women in Science

How we think is still largely controlled by gender stereotypical prejudice, but are these prejudices still accurate? Is there a fundamental difference between men and women? Angela Saini, a BBC-radio journalist, discovered that what we think to know about gender differences is based on shaky grounds and wrote a book about it. How come we think like this and why hasn’t science been able to change our traditional outlook on men and women. De Balie is hosting a discussion about the book with writer Angela Saini and professor Angela Maas.

A discussion with Angela Saini and Angela Maas about women in science, sexism and about how traditional thinking patterns related to gender are difficult to change even with scientific evidence.

Date and time: Saturday March 10, 15.00hrs
Location: De Balie, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10, 1017 RR Amsterdam
