GI-MS47-02 - Women in Science – An African Perspective


Delia Haynes (University of Stellenbosch, South Africa) 

This presentation will consider the issues faced by women in science from the African perspective. Many of the problems faced by women in Africa are the same as those faced by our colleagues around the world, but some challenges are unique to the African continent. The perspectives of women from across Africa, particularly those involved in crystallography, a growing field on the continent, will be shared. Suggestions for effecting change from the scientists themselves will also be discussed.
