It’s vital to realise that the narrative of gender-based discrimination in the sciences has been limited to cis-women in science. This post is part of a series of posts (we call this the ‘transgender persons in science mini-series’) that hopes to dismantle the invisibilisation that transgender persons in science go through.
The second in the series features Grace Banu, a Dalit and transgender technologist. The conversation between Grace and TheLifeofScience.com’s Sayantan Datta is brought to life by Siddhesh Gautam’s illustrations.
