The blog is a means of communication between women in science and the rest of the world. We aim to expose the challenges endured, and share strengths of women scientists, to inspire- the young and old and to crush the status quo that women cannot be powerful scientists. We feature updates about women in the world of science. We interview determined women who are contributing towards considerable advancements in their fields of expertise, in the continuously evolving world of science.
