The Guardian features an interview with computer scientist Wendy Hall, who was recently made a dame in the UK "for her services to science and technology," the article says. The story focuses on Hall's experiences as a woman in science, as well as her outlook for women getting into science today. One inherent challenge, Hall says, is in trying to keep up as a scientist while making the time to champion fellow women in the field: she's quoted as saying, "Every minute I'm standing up talking about women in science or talking to young women, my male colleagues are writing the research papers, getting the grant proposals, getting increases in salary."
