It Was Never A Dress: U of T's Science Leaders Talk Women and Diversity in STEM
University of Toronto students Ekaterina An, Alexandra Mogadam and Melissa Galati spent countless lunch breaks talking about the challenges they face as women in medicine.
An and Mogadam are in the master's program and Galati is a PhD student in the Institute of Medical Science at the Faculty of Medicine. They talked about issues like how conscious women have to be of their appearance, whether they can express their femininity and whether women have to work harder to be taken seriously.
But the questions proved too big for the three U of T graduate students.
So they put together a panel of U of T’s trailblazers in science, technology, engineering, math and medicine for a discussion at Hart House on Aug. 1, It Was Never A Dress. The event was inspired by a larger movement that modified the female washroom symbol to look like a superhero in order to foster conversations about perceptions of women.
