Description

Many academic disciplines in science, technology, engineering and maths tend to be dominated by men. There are a number of historical and social reasons for this, which persist today and keep women out of these disciplines. This is especially true for black women, who must also battle outdated cultural ideals that suggest they don’t “belong” in science.

In today’s episode of Pasha, Ndoni Mcunu, a PhD Candidate at the University of the Witwatersrand, takes us through her story of being a black woman in science.
