Trending: #girlswithtoys

Women really shouldn’t have to be doing this to prove their worth in STEM- but I’m enjoying all the pictures!

In response to a comment made by an astronomy and planetary science professor Shrinivas Kulkarni from CalTech (“many scientists … are what I call ‘boys with toys.’ I really like playing around with telescopes. It’s just not fashionable to admit it.”), women scientists from around the world are hitting back to prove that scientist can be #girlswithtoys too. The twittersphere is now brimming with photos of women with their “toys”, instrumentation and equipment they use daily for science.

The feed below shows some of the examples, and they are all fantastic. Women in STEM kick ass!
