Advocating to Change Academia for Mothers

AstronomyAdvocating to Change Academia for Mothers


In a commentary for Nature, Fernanda Staniscuaski writes that “[w]orldwide, mothers are too often pushed out of academia. But we are stepping up to push for a revolution in academia. Individuals and groups affected by the hostile academic environment should unite.

By organizing to seek change, mothers put ourselves at the forefront of work to reshape academic culture. Our efforts extend beyond personal struggles — we are architects of a transformative movement. The struggle for change spearheaded by mothers yields benefits for the entire academic community.”
