Mentor’s comment-

  • In the introduction briefly point out the facts suggesting gender gap in the field of science in the country.
  • In the body first explain why there was and is a continued sense of gender discrimination in science; list down the factors (Historical, societal etc.) Discuss how social and organizational conditions regulate women’s participation in science education
    and research. Present the case of India in detail. Suggest solutions to address the problem. Point out to policies and programme in this direction and what more needs to be done.
  • Conclude with the point – it is imperative that we understand and remove the sexism and institutional obstacles that prevent more women from entering the scientific field.
