Female scientists talk about evolution

Remember the video from the Miss America pageant in which contestants responded to the question “should evolution be taught in schools?” Remember how it made you despair for the future of society? (Watch it here, if you dare.)

In response, a group of female scientists have put together an awesome video: Let’s Talk About Evolution.   Go watch it! It’ll ease some of the despair.

  1. Thanks for posting – this made my day!
    Apart from the message about evolution and the contrast with the original video, it’s amazing how empowering it feels to watch a video with so many female scientists. I wonder if we should think of making more of these (female philosophers, mathematicians, etc. talk about their field in simple terms).
