Over the last week, the March for Science received a new flurry of media attention, sparked by an open letter from MfS volunteers. If you aren’t familiar with what is happening, you can read the full story in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and Gizmodo’s Earther. Before the March, 500 Women Scientists dissolved our partnership because we no longer saw our mission aligning with that of the MfS, though we still marched last April. Our mission remains plain, simple, and ambitious — to serve society by making science open, inclusive, and accessible. One year after our launch, we remain committed to fulfilling that mission, to remake science into an enterprise for all. Our membership is central to fulfilling that vision. So with that in mind, here’s our week in review!
