What's the talk about?

Did you know Darwin believed that women were intellectually inferior to men? Science has long had a problem with the female of our species, and in this talk I will explain why and how. I'll also explore new research that is correcting these old mistakes and attempting to paint a more accurate, and more empowering, portrait of women. From primates to patriarchy, I'll describe how easy it is for scientific research to be infected by sexism.

Angela Saini presents science programmes on BBC Radio 4 and the World Service, and her writing has appeared all over the world, including in New Scientist, the Guardian, Science, and Wired. She is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Kavli Science Journalism (2015) and the Association of British Science Writers’ award for best news story (2012).
