No Belles: Legends of Women in Science
Admission is free. Tickets are required. Please click on "more info" link to register for this event.
"No Belles" is a performance of the stories of women scientists who have and have not received the Nobel Prize. A significant disparity in our society is the number of women pursuing careers in STEM. An oft-cited reason for this imbalance is the lack of good role models. The Portal Theatre group's "No Belles" makes visible the significant contributions of women in science and serves as a powerful catalyst for increased interactions between the sciences and the community. Notably, a performance of “No Belles” was hosted by the ACS in 2017 at the Fall National meeting as an adjunct to a symposium on the underrepresentation of women in chemistry. It is outlined in CE&N’s Sept 11 2017 edition.
The Silicon Valley and California Sections of the American Chemical Society are teaming up to host performances of “No Belles” on six college campuses around the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas in October. The Stanford Libraries and the Stanford Chemistry Department are the local hosts bringing you "No Belles".
