Scheherazade Speaks Science

Dive into "inspiring stories about space and science," with Scheherazade Speaks Science. This publication was founded by astrophysicist Ghina M. Halabi, who recognized that "the world needs science and science needs more women." The site gets its name from the story of Scheherazade, a character from the book of Islamic Golden Age folktales One Thousand and One Nights, who uses storytelling as a platform to push back against misogyny. On a similar mission, Scheherazade Speaks Science allows readers to indulge in various kinds of stories that "promote the visibility of women scientists." Examples of such stories include "Can We Still Save the Northern White Rhinos?" and "Martian Deserts on Earth." Select stories are also available in Spanish. In addition to story collections and archives, the website also has a Resources page, which compiles supplementary tools and websites to assist storytellers. Scheherazade Speaks Science was launched in 2018 and is supported by the University of Cambridge.
