Motherhood in Science – How children change our academic careers : Experiences shared by the GYA Women in Science Working Group

The publication sheds light on the challenges of motherhood in the science sphere and academia, ranging from biased working environments and cultural and traditional expectations, to underdeveloped or missing support systems and feelings of self-guilt in a working parent.

This book’s 18 fascinatingly personal stories of motherhood are from mothers with differences varying in geographic location, discipline, experiences and outlook, but they are also stories from mothers with similarities in challenges, societal pressures, everyday routines, cultural expectations and achievements in being mothers and scientists.
