On March 11, 2016—just three days after International Women’s Day—the Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma library will cut the ribbon on a new “women in science” collection to be followed by a series of lectures and a Midi MINATEC brown bag lunch on the same topic.
The project, initiated and financed by France’s APMST (association for gender equality in science and technology), will help counter the popular belief about science’s “gender.” The collection contains biographies, works on education and diversity, scientific publications in fields like the cognitive sciences and neuropsychology, and sociological research on the role and social status of women in science throughout history. About half the collection, which will ultimately contain around a hundred works, will be in the stacks in February.
