Women of the future in the Royal Astronomical Society
Research output: Contribution to journal › Comment/debate
I heard all imaginable jokes about being a “woman of the future” when I won the science category of the Women of the Future Awards in 2014, but I think it's a good title to focus on how women stand in the RAS, now and into the near future. At the 2014 Women of the Future Awards ceremony, the most thought-provoking acceptance speech imagined a time when awards celebrating successful young women in the UK were no longer needed; as I write this I share that sentiment. I can't help but wish we weren't still having these same conversations.
