I think for me when I started looking at my own life — patronizing attitudes from men, and the lack of respect and support and recognition — it all felt very familiar, it felt like being a Sephardic Jew as a child again. So as a woman in science, I realized that I wanted to do something that would be broader than just the research. I couldn't just care about women in science — the problem was much larger. The more I read and analyzed my own experience, I had to become an activist, there was no way out for me.
