I've just had an article published by People and Science magazine - "Can women out of science be good for society".
Although the headline has been edited to read:
"Can women out of science be good for society? - Elaine Westwick thinks not".
But Elaine Westwick does think so!
Its supposed to be provocative and feminist - I'm actually saying that scientists taking a few years to bring up kids may not be catastrophic for science. Having a break from the scientific establishment can be good for society because parents bring their scientific mindset to other walks of life.
Read the article and you decide....
