A Lab of One's Own One Woman's Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science by Rita Colwell
epub | 2.69 MB | English | Author :Rita Colwell, Sharon Bertsch McGrayne | 1501181270 | 2020 | Simon & Schuster


Book Description :

A riveting memoir-manifesto from the first female director of the National Science Foundation about the entrenched sexism in science, the elaborate detours women have taken to bypass the problem, and how to fix the system.
If you think sexism thrives only on Wall Street or in Hollywood, you haven't visited a lab, a science department, a research foundation, or a biotech firm.

Rita Colwell escaped the narrow expectations of her Italian immigrant family to become a groundbreaking microbiologist and ecologist who tracked down how cholera survives around the world, a discovery that would save countless lives. But when she first applied for a graduate fellohip in biology, she was told, "We don't give fellohips to women." Colwell could have given up then and there, but she persisted, although a lack of support from some of her male superiors would force her to change her area of study six times before she earned her PhD.
