The Journey of Women in Science (E)

When we think about the scientific developments in India, we somehow forget the important contributions of the female achievers. In this show, we bring you the stories of Indian women scientists who defied all obstacles and left an indelible mark on the history of Indian science. This show discusses the situations that women faced and overcame since the 19th Century to pursue a career in science and how the changes in our society and provisions have increased the number of women researchers in present times. Through a conversation between Prof. Paramjit Khurana and Dr Sarah Iqbal, this special show attempts to inspire and kindle an interest in the minds of the future female scientists of India.
