Stephanie Green, Founder of Dauntless Daughters discusses science and the sterotypes we perpetuate. Stephanie is an equality activist and artist, founding Dauntless in 2016 to combat the gender imbalance in children's literature. In the UK just 9% of engineers are female, 14% of physics professers in British Universities are women and according to UIS data, less than 30% of the worlds science researchers are women. Why is this? Stephanie believes that if we start at the beginning we can clearly see how we imbed social norms surrounding Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) in our very youngest children in the images we present to them and the language we use.

While there is certainly work to be done in storytellung and in the visual landscape that we surround our children with, in this talk Stephanie will be considering if there is work to be done within the Science community itself: over time have we as a society created academic disciplines and structures that are inherently gender biased?
