One of the challenges faced by Rachel Carson was an establishment that was not yet welcoming to women in science. Much has changed in the past 50 years, but questions should be asked now about how far we have come and how far we have to go. To help us navigate these important issues, we will be joined by three women who can provide personal insights into the landscape for women in science in 2013.
