Friends, we cannot thank you enough for the support you have given 500 Women Scientists over the last year! We relied on our community for strength, encouragement, ideas, and passion to keep up the fight, even when every day brought a new assault on the values we hold dear. We have big plans for 2018 and we hope you will be there with us!
We are taking the next two weeks off, but will be back to our regular schedule beginning January 8th. Sending well wishes to all of you for the holidays!
