This week went well. I can honestly say that the material and discussions in this classes are stretching my own understanding of gender mainstreaming. Opinions, traditions, and pre-conceived stereotypes aside, there is no doubt technology, medicine, and our societies will be a better place when women are able to become more involved.
Australian scientist, Suzanne Cory will be the focus of my Culture Site Project. Suzanne is a professor, a leading scientist in cancer researcher, a wife, and the new headmaster of her own selective, co-ed high-school. She is currently serving a five year term as the President of the Australian Academy of Science – the first women to do so. Dr. Cory is a women of great influence and very revolutionary in her research about cancer cells. Dr. Suzanne Cory is a role model for all women, science-ey or not. I am more than confident that there will be plenty of information available about Dr. Cory as she is and has been in the the prime of her career for the last 25 years!
What beautiful weather this weekend, hope all got to enjoy!!
