Borinqueña, a new initiative for Hispanic women in science

Almost 140 years have passed since famed Puerto Rican educator, philosopher, and lawyer, Eugenio Maria de Hostos, revolutionized Latin American intellectual spheres by publishing a passionate essay advocating for science education for women. Back in Hostos’ days, women still lacked the right to vote and few had access to any type of higher education.

The following scientists will be in charge of the organization, writing and editing of Borinqueña Blog. Visit their profiles to learn more about these role models or to contact them:

Greetchen Díaz - Borinqueña’s main coordinator and editor. Greetchen is a microbiologist and is currently conducting postdoctoral training at the University of Nebraska. In her limited free time, she is also social media director, volunteer coordinator, and writer of the blog series Ciencia a tu alrededor (Science is all around you) for CienciaPR. She is so busy and dynamic, we suspect Greetchen has found the secret to cloning herself.

Why women leave science, you ask? THIS. This is why.
