STEMMinist book club Inferior

Description

In our second meeting of the Vancouver STEMminist book club we will be reading “Inferior: How Science got Women Wrong” by Angela Saini. Join us on the lovely terrace at Hycroft Manor (with or without a glass of wine, or other beverage) to discuss how women are included in science, and discussions around biology, psychology, and anthropology.

We will do a quick overview of the book at the beginning of the session followed by a deeper discussion. It is suggested to read the book, but we welcome you to attend and contribute to the discussion either way. All voices and perspectives are welcomed.

“Inferio” is available online and in select book stores, and or may be ordered in by your favourite bookstore.

FAQs

About the STEMminist Book Club Vancouver chapter:

The plan is to mirror the STEMminist Bookclub that was started in Australia by Dr. Caroline Ford (@DrCFord). We will aim to read one book every two months followed by an in-person meeting here in Vancouver, BC. You can also able to contribute to the discussion online on twitter @stemminist / #stemministbc.

If you are interested in the contributions of women to science, learning more about the history of science, and want to talk about some of the issues and stories brought up in the books this is the book club for you!
