ELECTORETTE PODCAST | EPISODE TWO
DR. SARAH MYHRE: MISOGYNY IN SCIENCE
"Your brain is not as important as the currency of your body and the sexual appeal of your body to the male gaze." This is just one of the points made during my conversation on feminism, racism, climate science and the Trump administration with public scholar and climate scientist, Dr. Sarah Myhre.
Dr. Myhre is one of the founders of Seattle's branch of 500 Women Scientists and is a vocal advocate for greater racial equality and for greater representation of women's voices in science and in society as a whole. In fact, she describes herself as a loudmouth and nasty woman. In our conversation, Dr. Myhre is very vulnerable and open about her experiences as a woman in science, being a single mother and about coming to terms with her own privilege in a racially charged political climate.
