This week we celebrate Marie Curie's 150th birthday. Since her time as a scientist, the situation for women in science has changed a lot. Nevertheless, only a minority of science professors today is female. AcademiaNet spoke with Professor Polly Arnold who is the producer of "A Chemical Imbalance" and a strong fighter for women in science.
We speak with AcademiaNet member Professor Seema Arora-Jonsson, who researches how rural development and environmental governance are carried out in rural areas and what effects gender and ethnicity have on the development.
