Kate Zernike with Michael Barbaro: The Exceptions


Masks are encouraged and appreciated, but not mandatory for this event.

Michael Barbaro (The Daily) talks with Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Kate Zernike about her new book, The Exceptions: Nancy Hopkins, MIT, and the Fight for Women in Science — a powerful story about a nationwide reckoning with the pervasive sexism in science.

In 1999, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology admitted to discriminating against women on its faculty, forcing institutions across the country to confront a problem they had long ignored: the need for more women at the top levels of science. Written by the journalist who broke the story for TheBoston Globe, TheExceptions is the untold story of how sixteen highly accomplished women on the MIT faculty came together to do the work that triggered the historic admission.
