Babelia publishes a dossier that reviews the role of women in the history of science

Babelia, the cultural supplement of the newspaper El País, published last September 16th a complete dossier focused on the almost epic life trajectories of scientific women who were characterized by their desire to overcome barriers of all kinds.

The publication coincides with the inauguration of the exhibition "Nobel Women" organized by the CSIC and the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (MNCN), with Rocaviva Eventos, which will take place in the MNCN between September 20th, 2017 and March 20th, 2018.

This dossier also includes an opinion panel, "Retos y rotos", written by Dr. Flora de Pablo, CIB scientist co-director of the "3D Lab: Development, Differentiation and Degeneration". This article highlights that there is still a long way, not only in the field of science, for women to be recognized for their talent and effort, emphasizing that not giving equal real opportunities to women - compared to male colleagues - is, beyond an injustice, an error that has serious economic consequences and contributes to slow the progress of a country.
