Our young Israeli Editorial Board members are baffled that seeing a woman in a leadership position or a man in a domestic role still manages to surprise.
They want to ask you:
“Are you really doing what you want, or what others expect of you?”
Because, when such images are not the common currency, it becomes important to ask ourselves whether we define our own paths in life, or whether we are conforming to others’ expectations.
Who are our Israeli Editorial Board members?
The Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem has been working with a very diverse team of high school students: girls and boys, Arabs and Jews, and religious and non-religious young people are all represented on the editorial board. They were brought together by their interest in bringing science to a wider audience as well as more gender balance to STEM fields. Some of the students are even part of the museum’s staff, and help with projects, events, and exhibitions that contribute towards these goals.
Working in three small groups, the students discussed gender and science, and created visuals for the Expect Everything blog! We are very happy to share their contributions with our readers.
