We hope that science is free from bias and prejudice, but its record of research on women proves that this isn't always true. In her new book, Inferior, Angela Saini interrogates what we think we know about women and why so much of it is wrong. She also explores new research that is attempting to paint a more accurate, and more empowering, portrait of women. 

Liverpool Women in Science and Engineering society (LivWiSE) celebrates, supports and promotes women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEM).
