Dr. Shari Stern

As interviewed by Lyssa Lashus, March 19, 2019
"From your perspective it seems like gender equality, like a switch: was not there and then it was. But actually it was a real slow process with a lot of different people."

Introductory Profile: About Dr. Sharon Stern

Dr. Sharon Stern was born in 1946 in America and is a part of the Baby Boomer generation, meaning that she was a young woman during a time when women didn’t have many rights. She has had to face many hardships during her life such as being a working mother while earning her PhD and withstanding gender inequality, but she still managed to accomplish what she wanted out of life and became a scientist, professor, and a mother.

I had the chance to talk to Dr. Stern about how she jumped over the hurdles in her life. She talked about what it was like when the people around her didn’t understand or care about her problems and told her how she should live her life.
