In India, as everywhere else in the world, women constitute a minority group in science. Why is there this gender imbalance? Does it hurt science? Does it hurt women in science? Is the imbalance in numbers inevitable, or can efforts be made to correct it? What role is played by biases, implicit or otherwise? What are some of the success stories of women in science? These are some of the questions I will discuss.
