I’ve Made More Than 1,700 Wikipedia Entries on Women Scientists and I’m Not Yet Done
“The job that pays me,” Jessica Wade told VICE, smiling, “is that of a material scientist who works on new material technology for a more sustainable future.” So, what’s the non-paying job for the 34-year-old British scientist who works as a research fellow in the Department of Materials at the Imperial College in London? Since 2017, it’s been writing a Wikipedia entry every day, sometimes even two, to highlight the achievements of women scientists whose contributions to the world have either gone unnoticed or remain largely unacknowledged, no thanks to the systemic racial bias in Wikipedia’s coverage as well as that of mainstream media. Wade had been thinking of “equity and representation in science” for a really long time, which is what led her to undertake what would later become an increasingly ambitious project. Having completed both her undergrad and PhD courses in physics, Wade was mindful to the extent her field of study remains largely accessible to people from more privileged socio-economic backgrounds. It’s also a field that is largely dominated by white men.

Moving labs: a checklist for researchers with disabilities
Kelsey Byers outlines some of the things disabled scientists should look out when they are looking to move labs, both at home and abroad. Byers, an evolutionary chemical ecologist who was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome in her 20s and is now a group leader at the John Innes Institute, a plant and microbial research institute in Norwich, UK, also offers advice on how to talk about disability to potential employers. She is joined by Logan Gin, a STEM education researcher at Brown University in Providence. Gin, who has diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism, describes how his research is helping to identify solutions to support students with disabilities.

Saying ‘no’ in science isn’t enough
When women refuse requests to do unrewarded tasks, another female colleague often gets asked instead. In August 2022, a group of female scholars wrote ‘Why four scientists spent a year saying no’: an article about what they had gained by saying no to 100 work-related requests over the course of year. They knew we had found kindred spirits in the authors. They, too, have lost time by saying yes to work that didn’t move their careers forward. That led four female professors, to form the No Club. Over the past decade, they have researched work that doesn’t help to advance careers - an attempt to understand why they, along with many others, were doing so much of it. They gave this work a name: non-promotable tasks (NPTs). Although this work matters to an organization, it brings no external reward or recognition to the individual who does it.

The Feminist Test We Keep Failing: Lost Women of Science Podcast
There’s a test that they at Lost Women of Science seem to fail again and again: the Finkbeiner test. Named for science writer, Ann Finkbeiner, the Finkbeiner test is a checklist for writing profiles of female scientists without being sexist. It includes rules such as not mentioning her husband’s job or her childcare arrangements or how she was the “first woman to ...” - all rules we break regularly on this show. In this episode, Katie Hafner talks to Christie Aschwanden, the science writer who created the test, and Ann Finkbeiner, who inspired it, to find out how they came up with these rules and to see if there might be hope yet for our series. Hafner reports her findings to Carol Sutton Lewis, who has a whole other set of rules for telling these stories.
