Kathe Mazur's assured performance enhances the author's in-depth account of 16 female tenured scientists who challenged the pervasive gender-based discrimination taking place at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the 1990s. In this compelling production, which has the life and work of Dr. Nancy Hopkins at its center, Mazur's voice guides listeners through a "thousand tiny cuts" spanning disciplines, degree programs, and institutions throughout the twentieth century. Dr. Hopkins's gradual journey to awareness mirrors those of her many contemporaries, and their frustration and internal struggles are evident in Mazur's voice. Her well-modulated delivery of scientific discoveries in genetics and molecular biology makes the concepts easier to absorb. This is a galvanizing account for listeners who advocate equity, diversity, and inclusion in all professions. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
