Georgina Voss spoke at an event that was a collaboration between the Women in Physics and Physics Communicators Groups of the Institute of Physics. Georgina Voss is a sociologist, currently at the Royal College of Art, who is fascinated with gendered discussions in science communication.
She spoke with Martyn Bull, a science film maker and communicator involved with organising the event that took place on 21 June 2013.
