Gender bias is legally defined as the "unequal treatment in employment opportunity (such as promotion, pay, benefits and privileges), and expectations due to attitudes based on the sex of an employee or group of employees" .

Here, we provide a list of articles and websites for anyone who wishes to learn more about gender bias in science and/or get more involved in our effort.
