GENDER EQUALITY ORGANISATIONS
The Committee for Mainstreaming – Women in Science in Norwayhttp://kvinneriforskning.no/english/
The Committee for Mainstreaming – Women in Science in Norway has established the resource bank as a tool for working towards gender equality in the academic sector.
The EU-sponsored EuroWistdom (European Women in Science TV Drama On Message) project seeks to build on the many years of experience gained from a British initiative set up by BBC Producers. It aims to find new ways of using science and technology as a source of inspiration for themes and characters in popular TV formats, and to develop positive role models for young women rather than the usual clichéd stereotypes.
The project provides financial and other support for European TV scriptwriters and producers seeking to make current science and technology issues a central focus of their work, and to view these from a female perspective. This is done by putting them in contact with scientists who have interesting stories to tell.
