Ever wonder what science is REALLY like?

Sometimes people ask me what it’s like to be a scientist as a girl. After I tell them I’m not, I like to shout at them anyway about income inequality and lack of childcare options.

June 27 Update: Thanks to scathing reviews in the media, the video of models dancing around laughing and doing nothing related to science was replaced with an interview with an actual female PhD. Granted the interview is still rather vapid, but a vast improvement. Here, here! To see the original, check out The Telegraph’s article here.
