Cooperation event: PICTURE A SCIENTIST - Film screening and panel discussion


Who actually does science? And why is it still "the male scientist" in our imagination? In the U.S. documentary PICTURE A SCIENTIST, a female biologist, a female chemist and a female geologist take on these questions and lead the audience on a journey through the experiences of their academic careers - as women of science.


In their careers, they are exposed to discrimination from the very beginning. Women scientists have to fight a constant battle for recognition, respect and equality.

The documentary gives hope because it tells the story of strength and solidarity, of courageous women scientists who stand up against injustice and get a worldwide discourse of change and equality rolling.

The film can be streamed online from 30.06. to 01.07.2021 free of charge for RWTH and FH students as well as RWTH and FH employees.

Due to the fast allocation of the free tickets, IGaD now supports the offer with another 300 tickets, which are now available to RWTH and FH employees or students.

A panel discussion on the film moderated by the network "Frauen in Melaten" e.V. on 1.07.2021 from
6 p.m. complements the film screening.
