Indian women are underrepresented in many STE(A)M fields. Some more than others. Laws and policies need to be changed. Affirmative action and cultural dialogue is needed. We're on it! Thank you for joining our fight for equal opportunities for all genders.

About Labhopping

TheLifeofScience.com collective is a feminist science media platform that aims to inform, educate and responsibly report on the intersection of gender and STE(A)M in India. As we forge a new road towards lobbying for gender parity in STEM, familiar sources of information -- articlescalendars and comics, become our tools for advocating for the same.
 
TheLifeofScience.com project follows two science writers, Aashima Dogra and Nandita Jayaraj, as they chronicle the life and research of Indian women scientists actively working in labs around India. It was launched in February 2016. In the first year, they won a Laadli Media Award for Gender Sensitivity 'for telling the stories of women scientists who are rarely acknowledged in mainstream media'. Their investigations reveal the Indian patriarchal hierarchy that has kept women from pursuing scientific research.

The duo is currently working on their second book, a reportage about the realities of the Indian women scientists. Their first book, "31 fantastic adventures in science: Women Scientists in India", is an illustrated anthology of Indian women scientists for children.
