Call for Proposals: Recruiting Girls into Science

The Feminist Press is soliciting novel ideas for short stories, books, and book series that are aimed at getting girls excited about science education and about the prospect of pursuing careers in science. The "Women Working: Thinking, Creating, and Making Science" project is funded by the National Science Foundation. Suggestions include scientific detective stories and graphic novels that feature girls or women engaged in scientific research or applications. The idea is to transcend stereotypes and transform preconceptions about gender and science. See the Call for Proposals for more info.
