PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights.

Interested parties could watch the film "Picture a Scientist" for free. In order to talk about what we saw and to find out what we as a society and scientists can do to stop the unequal treatment of women, a roundtable discussion took place the day after with Anneliese Niehoff.

Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the field of science and technology: The double Nobel Price winner and discoverer of radioactivity Marie Curie (1867-1934), the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878-1968), and the Viennese Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000) with the invention of frequency hopping.
Incidents of their lives, achievements, and impediments as well as the contents of their research and the passion for their work are in the center of the theatre play „Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible“, produced by the Viennese association portraittheater. Illustrated with music and videos with three girls the performance shows within 95 minutes an entertaining portrait of extraordinary women in history.
