OWSD National Chapters in Sudan and Myanmar

OWSD National Chapters in Sudan and Myanmar

I went to Myanmar and to Sudan to film the launch of the local National Chapters of the Organization for Women in Science in the Developing World (OWSD). Two important events for local women scientists: for the first time they were establishing an institutional network to reinforce their status with regard to local governments and to connect to each other. I tried to document not only the event but also these women’s efforts and motivation in developing science in challenging contexts, where science is under-financed in spite of the need and where women are often seen as second class citizens.
