This morning I turned on my computer and started surfing around the internets, only to find this blog included on a list of 50 must read women scientist bloggers at the Health Zone Blog here, in an article with this descriptor:
Women have long played an important role in scientific developments and discourse, however, this role has historically received relatively less recognition and coverage as compared to their male counterparts. Over the last few years, however, blogging has opened up a way for leading women in science to bring to light the important improvements women have made, the struggles they still encounter, and the strategies they set up for their work to be recognized.
Go on over there and look at the list if you have a moment, there are some terrific blogs listed. And, I have to say- it’s the absolute highlight of my short blogging life to be included on the same list with Female Science Professor (as something of an FSP groupie). Much of the rest of the list includes a blogging community that I’ve come to know over the last year or so, whose trials and tribulations (and victories) I follow, and whose participation with comments on this blog keep the discussion interesting. It feels great to be part of this community!
