AbstractThe author discusses the gender gap in the field of science. The author shares her experiences of being involved in science-related works, in which she became successful. However, she says that there is existing gender gap in science that is driven by the competitive and unusual individualized academic research's nature. She suggests the need for a system in science which favors health work/life balance, diversity, and broad intellectualism.
