ĊineXjenza | Picture a Scientist will focus on women in science and their struggle for equality. Join the event on April 18th, 7pm in the Spazju Kreattiv cinema to learn about how women are often underrepresented, mistreated and not taken seriously in science occupations.
The evening will feature a screening of the documentary ‘Picture a Scientist’, which highlights the ongoing gender discrimination against women in research and academia. The film takes you on a journey through the experiences of prominent female scientists.
After the film screening, there will be a discussion with prominent Maltese female scientists; Prof Josephine Ann Cutajar, an expert in the sociology of gender, and Professor Jean Calleja-Agius – the Head of Anatomy at the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Malta. In an informal atmosphere they will share their experience as successful female scientists and will answer questions from the audience.
