Affirmation of support for female scientists and scholars

Dear colleagues,

Many of you may be aware of the recent controversial article in Nature Communications. I am forwarding a statement of concern relating to these issues in an open letter that reaffirms our support for female scientists and scholars at all levels. If you agree with the message, we hope that you will add your signature at the bottom of the letter using the following link: Please also share it with other female, male and non-binary colleagues inside and outside your institution. We plan to disseminate this open letter broadly on social media. We hope that other scholars who shared our vision of a better, more inclusive future in STEM will join our collective voice. After that, we will continue to add further signatures on a rolling basis.
Thank you for considering, and best wishes.
In solidarity,
Dr. Joann Mossa, Professor
