Dynamic and enterprising, African women scientists are the new face of a modern African continent that is actively engaged in the great upheavals of our societies. But in this competitive world, they are still under-represented. We followed three of them, respectively specialists in nanochemistry, molecular biology and astrophysics.
Who are these women? What obstacles did they have to overcome to reach the top of their art?
What impact do they have on their communities? Will they be able to find concrete solutions to the major challenges of the 21st century? What if the Einstein of tomorrow were an African woman?
