The new feature film "Picture a Scientist" examines systemic gender and racial discrimination that have existed for decades in the field of science, presenting evidence of that discrimination via personal anecdotes and hard data. The documentary reveals how women, especially those of color, have run into bias during their careers, with the result that they currently make up less than a third of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals in the United States.
