    Women in STEM: A Lesson in Perseverance
    “Women in STEM: A Lesson in Perseverance” explores different facets of sexual misconduct, harassment, and discrimination in STEM academia to highlight how the environment has protected perpetrators of sexual misconduct and facilitated a self-perpetuating gender gap to this day. By combining insights from a database of publicly reported academic misconduct cases, reports from investigative journalism, and gender metadata pulled from scientific journal databases, I provide a comprehensive view of the harsh environment for women in STEM. I hope that this project will buoy and increase efforts aimed at advocacy for women’s rights both inside of and beyond the STEM field and serve to underscore the resilience and significance of women who have pursued (and are pursuing) careers in STEM. Tools used: JavaScript, HTML, CSS, D3.js, Vue.js, Python, R, Excel.
