On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, actualized by UNESCO and UN-Women, join us to engage in a variety of family-friendly activities from local women in STEM, a book signing by paleontologist and PBS Eons host and paleontologist Kallie Moore, as well as a screening of the short documentary film The Bearded Lady Project: Challenging the Face of Science. Then, join us for an eye-opening panel discussion about the struggles and successes of women in the geosciences with Lexi Jamieson Marsh and Dr. Ellen Currano, the masterminds behind the exhibition. About The Bearded Lady Project: This film and accompanying photo exhibition demonstrate the competencies and passions of female paleontologists and how this unfair, gendered stereotype can be easily diminished with the donning of a beard. With some well-placed facial hair, any female scientist can be perceived as equally rugged, tough, and determined.
