Women in Science – Berta Kar

The illustrator Berta Kar was shocked by how few women work in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. For instance, only 12% of engineers are women, and only 26% of computer scientists – a problem exacerbated by the perception – still prevalent – that STEM subjects are for men. She wanted to help challenge this by highlighting six inspiring women in science, her drawings of them are above.
