The consensus was, however, that encouraging more women to qualify and work in STI sectors was an important first step that matters for a number of reasons. To do this, said contributors, we can learn from other diversity-increasing initiatives such as parliamentary representation programs and supply-chain schemes. Think intersectionalities and pay attention to needs of women with disabilities, said others.
Inclusion alone is not enough Most contributors felt strongly that inclusion was not enough and drew attention to the limitations of a focus on numbers, and highlighted other approaches that would lead to more gender-transformative STI.
Instead, the focus needs to shift to the development of education and working environments that encourage a range of values and competencies. These include collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, innovation, ethics and a knowledge of human rights and social responsibility alongside STEM subject teaching. Women can find that inclusion is trap that ties them into patriarchal systems, cultures and rules and relations.
Or [they] abandon education careers, jobs or positions many times, living that as their own failure.

Transformational change is more difficult and is long and never-ending process — but is [requisite] with the aspiration of a more fair, supportive and happier society. It should also feed in from the bottom up, and via inclusive channels through, for instance, participatory policy development, public comment and accountability mechanisms.
We need to ensure that women and girls are active in these spaces. Ultimately, inclusiveness needs to be built into the entire development infrastructure and reflected in political stability, well-functioning institutions, an educated workforce, a sound research and education infrastructure and linkage between public and private innovation actors. STI could play a key role in achieving this and in the overall development process. It was agreed that both bottom-up and community-level engagement were essential.
As almost every grass-roots movement proves, bottom-up leadership creates a huge positive impact. By bringing to the fore inconvenient truths that counter mainstream patriarchal interests, they can disseminate ideas, develop organizing strategies and stimulate and coordinate opposition. The great advantage is that while the top levels of STI sector management and much formal science continue to be male-dominated, bottom-up power may offer an entry point for women and girls to get involved and exert influence Education and awareness Education is another bottom-up tool where it allows girls to develop their potential in STEM subjects so that their drive and interest serve as motivators.
Awareness and information about the benefits of STEM for women and girls needs to be disseminated at the community level. Ownership A key example of why STI ownership among women is crucial is food production. When women are given access to education and information about the potential of STIs, they can become powerful creators of food production solutions that, for instance, reduce labour and improved standards of living.
They also then see the need to encourage their daughters to pursue STEM subjects — and, in fact, to go to school.

STI innovation should address such issues of ownership, focusing on approaches that ask what communities really need. That fundamental social change — the top-down change — must also include women who are invested in the bigger picture. Also, as one contributor put it: This suggests that we also need to consider how we break down the silo walls between women for instance, poverty, privilege, race and find what women have in common that will allow them to build social structures that supersede their immediate physical environments.
Technology may well be a very useful tool for this process because it can transcend physical space. It also has to be said that time is a scarce resources for many women, and both bottom-up and community action can be time-consuming. What are the implications for gender and STI — and is this a transformative opportunity that will shift underlying attitudes and practices and structural barriers around gender and result in positive substantive gains for women and society?
Sabin Muzzafar, founder of digital magazine Ananke, said: Contributors saw it as vitally important, but also as a double-edge sword. While technology itself is neutral, society and our systems that give it a gendered nature. Effort should be invested in making technology subservient to the principles driving it and its use and ensuring that it does not create or advance inhibitors.
There has to be a focus on rights and ethics in technology development — and we should remember that it can also be positively subversive. It can alert them to rights that are denied or unknown to them, bypassing traditional, off-limits or hard-to-access channels of information.
It can empower them to question norms and offer new horizons and perspectives. Its power to build communication and engagement can help break down old power structures and societal constraints. It has already been important for cross-cultural learning and understanding, helping women in many regions to understand their potential, skills and capabilities and to become effective in society. Finally, the internet is a highly accessible avenue towards learning for women and can help them fill the gaps in their STI engagement.
It can keep them aware of technological developments and encourage them to adopt innovative practices and can allow for grassroots development rather than leaving people helpless while they wait for government or some other agency to deliver solutions. Drawbacks Technology may not be viewed so favourably by women who fear it may take more away from them than it gives — for instance, semi-skilled women whose jobs might be lost to automation, such as the 3D printing of the craft products that give them their livelihood.
And while technology can transcend boundaries, it can also be used by authorities to control and separate groups. Clearly, by no means all women have access to or the freedom to use information technology. Other scholars argue for his homosexuality: His ashes are interred beneath a floor medallion in the middle of the foyer in the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem. The title is taken from his poem " The Negro Speaks of Rivers ".
Within the center of the cosmogram is the line: My soul has grown deep like the rivers. I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young. I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep. I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it. I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln went down to New Orleans, and I've seen its muddy bosom turn all golden in the sunset. Except for McKay, they worked together also to create the short-lived magazine Fire!!
Devoted to Younger Negro Artists. Hughes and his contemporaries had different goals and aspirations than the black middle class. Hughes and his fellows tried to depict the "low-life" in their art, that is, the real lives of blacks in the lower social-economic strata. They criticized the divisions and prejudices within the black community based on skin color.
The younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased we are glad. If they are not, it doesn't matter. We know we are beautiful. The tom-tom cries, and the tom-tom laughs. If colored people are pleased we are glad.

If they are not, their displeasure doesn't matter either. We build our temples for tomorrow, strong as we know how, and we stand on top of the mountain free within ourselves. Permeating his work is pride in the African-American identity and its diverse culture. He confronted racial stereotypes, protested social conditions, and expanded African America's image of itself; a "people's poet" who sought to reeducate both audience and artist by lifting the theory of the black aesthetic into reality.
The stars are beautiful, So the eyes of my people Beautiful, also, is the sun. Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people. His thought united people of African descent and Africa across the globe to encourage pride in their diverse black folk culture and black aesthetic.
Hughes was one of the few prominent black writers to champion racial consciousness as a source of inspiration for black artists. A radical black self-examination was emphasized in the face of European colonialism.
At a time before widespread arts grants, Hughes gained the support of private patrons and he was supported for two years prior to publishing this novel. It was judged to be a "long, artificial propaganda vehicle too complicated and too cumbersome to be performed.
Chambers and Lieber worked in the underground together around — He finished the book at a Carmel, California cottage provided for a year by Noel Sullivan, another patron. Overall, they are marked by a general pessimism about race relations, as well as a sardonic realism.
InHughes received a Guggenheim Fellowship. The same year that Hughes established his theatre troupe in Los Angeles, he realized an ambition related to films by co-writing the screenplay for Way Down South.
