Presenting science in a gender-neutral way can also help young women become interested in science in the first place, and much work needs to be done to remove the cultural barriers that discourage women from staying in scientific careers. A woman should not need to give up her femininity to be a scientist. She should have the possibility of being mother or dressing as a woman – and be considered smart and serious.
I no longer believe that making women more courageous, more assertive, ‘more like me’, is the right way to move forward. Women should not have to do all of the adapting. It is time for society to move toward women, not women toward society.
