As a women in physics, I am of course interested in issues about underrepresented groups in STEM. Stories like these complied in the youtube video HerStores help let under represented groups know that they are not alone, and that they can make it in the field.
Physics is behind many of the other STEM fields when it comes to gender equality, and underrepresented groups fair even worse. Acknowledging the problem is an important step. The next, and perhaps more important step is to actively try to do something about it. Highlighting positive role models, and how they became physicist, is just one great way to help level the playing field. I hope everyone watches and shares this great video.
