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.
Presented by Grand County Public Library and The Moab Festival of Science.
Screening venue TBA (either Star Hall or Center St. Ball Fields)
* May be unsuitable for young viewers: this movie contains some strong language as women recount their experiences with sexual harassment.
The Grand County Public Library invited the community to share pictures showing how 2020 was different. We have assembled these together in a Digital Scrapbook to serve as a Community Time Capsule of the past year. For comments, suggestions or additional submissions, please email email@example.com
