Greider on women in science

I wrote below about the unusual number of women recognized during the 2009 Nobel Prizes. Since then, another woman , Elinor Ostrom, PhD, shared the Nobel in economics--for the first time ever. Now, Carol Greider, who shared the Nobel in physiology or medicine, talks with Claudia Dreifus of the New York Times about why the telomerase field has more women than other scientific specialties, what she thought about then-Harvard-president Lawrence Summers' infamous comments about women in science, and whether this year marks a true turning point for women in science.
