Picture A Scientist

Who actually does science? And why is a scientist usually a male in our imagination? In PICTURE A SCIENTIST, a biologist, a chemist and a 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 face discrimination from the very beginning. Female 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 female scientists who stand up against injustice and get a worldwide discourse of change and equality rolling. In futuristic laboratories and spectacular fieldwork settings, it clearly shows the inestimable work of female researchers and how science can be moved for the better through systematic and structural upheaval – for a world where girls can realize their dreams of research, for a world full of female biologists, astronauts, chemists and mathematicians.
