Hear ye, hear ye!
The Hermitage’s Q&A for her “Wimminz in Academia, now with 100% fewer babies” panel is now open! Yeah, I know, I kind of dogged on this panel a few months ago. But I was also in the midst of postpartum depression and struggling to figure out how in the hell to be a mommy and a scientist all at the same time. On top of which, I was feeling a little bit bitchy and looking for a fight (which I finally got a couple of months later…it wasn’t as fun as I thought it would be, but very therapeutic nonetheless.)
Let’s face it – there are many, many issues that women deal with outside of childbearing-while-working-difficulties, and I bet at least some of the women who read this blog are interested in those issues. I certainly was prior to finding someone I wanted to marry and procreate with. Unfortunately, conversations about women’s issues rarely make it past baby talk. For this reason, Hermi organized last year’s panel, and I am now honored to be included in her most recent panel of sci-women bloggers. (Although I am still waiting for my coffee mug for being the first to respond to your email, Hermi ;-))
So head on over to Hermi’s blog and submit your question(s)!
