PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries—including social scientists, neuroscientists and psychologists—who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
PICTURE A SCIENTIST’s release is part of the Sloan Foundation’s Science on Screen initiative. We are grateful to our partners at the Coolidge Corner Theater for their help organizing this special release.
