Women in Research: Stories from the Global South

Balancing time between research and expectations of home life was a common theme

In November, I wrote a post about gender inequity in higher education and about some of the particular issues and challenges in the Global South.

Over the past few months at INASP (where I am Publications and Engagement Manager), we’ve been talking to some of the inspiring women with whom we work, to produce a set of six interviews showing how these women are making a difference. This collection was published for Sunday’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

The interviewees, from Tanzania, Kenya, Nepal, Somalia and Sierra Leone, bring a wealth of different experiences and perspectives and their stories are exciting and inspiring. Many of the interviewees bring perspectives of past or present work in Europe or the USA, and many common themes emerge between countries.
