Premiere: The Uprising - An MIT Press Documentary Short

Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 10:00am to 10:15am

Virtual Event

A 13-minute documentary, The Uprising tells the story of the unprecedented behind-the-scenes effort that amassed irrefutable evidence of differential treatment of men and women on the MIT faculty in the 1990s. Featuring biologist Nancy Hopkins, the film chronicles the experiences of marginalization and discouragement that accompanied Hopkins’ research and highlights the steps a group of sixteen women faculty members took to make science more diverse and equitable at MIT.

Directed by Ian Cheney and Sharon Shattuck.
