Where are the Women?

Soy cámara online

“Where are the women?” looks at the pressing issue of women’s scant presence in positions of responsibility in science. Despite the fact that women are in the majority at universities and graduate with the best qualifications, just 20% of the best funded professorships are held by women, a statistic that is repeated in all high level scientific research institutions.

This episode of Soy Cámara highlights and explains the great loss represented by the lack of women in positions of responsibility in the scientific world. It is also a tribute to all the women scientists who have contributed to our knowledge of the world and improved human life with their work in natural sciences, formal science, experimental sciences and health sciences.

The programme includes interviews with Inés Sánchez de Madariaga, lecturer at the Polytechnic University of Madrid; Mara Dierssen, neurobiologist at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG); Isabelle Vernós, ICREA research lecturer at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG); Joan Guinovart, Director of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB); Caterina Biscari, Director of the ALBA Synchrotron; and Núria Sebastian, lecturer at Pompeu Fabra University. This programme is based on the sessions of the Women and Science "ICREA-CCCB Debates" 2015.
