Wrapping up our coverage of 2015’s convention, we come to a fascinating discussion of the female companions of the Pertwee era. It was during this time, in both Doctor Who and the world in general, that women began to have more of presence in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It was still a highly male dominated field, just as it is in many respects today. However the change in times during the early 70’s was exemplified through shows like Doctor Who. Please join Adrienne Provenzano as we explore the impact women had on the STEM fields, and how this impacted our favorite show and vice versa.
I wish the apologize for the first portion of this video. The quality is not up to standard at the beginning, but I promise that it does improve.
