Nobel Prize Winning Women in Science

I caught a re-broadcast of this radio program over the weekend and had to share: Nobel Prize winners Drs. Blackburn and Greider on the Diane Rehm show, also featuring Melody Barnes, who works in the Obama administration. They talk about the importance of mentoring and supporting women as they start having families. It's also nice to hear that the president cares about diversity in STEM.

Today, there's also a CNN article about Dr. Greider, who, as it turns out, is a single mom. What an inspiration!

The two laureates spoke to AP about the need for gender equity. It would be nice if a male laureate were to join them in this call.
