Myriam Sarachik Speaks on the Rights of Women and Scientists


Dr. Sarachik


Time: Apr 23, 2015 4:00 pm
Location: NAC  Ballroom

More than 70 years ago, Myriam Sarachik’s family fled her native Belgium when the Germans invaded. After several attempts they succeeded in escaping the Nazis in late 1941. They lived for more than five years in Cuba and then settled in New York in 1947. In the early 1960s, Dr. Sarachik battled hard to gain a faculty position in physics at a time when there were few women in the field.

Today, Sarachik is Distinguished Professor of Physics at The City College of New York. On Thursday, April 23, she speaks of her past experiences and her life-long advocacy for women in science and the human rights of scientists everywhere in the final talk of City College’s inaugural “Presidential Conversations: Activism, Scholarship, and Engagement” series. Her topic, 4 – 5: 30 p.m. in CCNY’s NAC Ballroom, is entitled “Advocating for Women in Science: Advocating for the Human Rights of all Scientists.”
