Yesterday in London was the launch of the first Science Grrl Calendar
Our new ICG Outreach Officer, Dr. Jen Gupta (who recently obtained her PhD studying distant galaxies with supermassive black holes in their centres from the University of Manchester) is featured in the calendar, and attended the opening event in London.

The calendar shows a variety of female scientists (and male scientists celebrating their female scientist role models), and is being sold to raise money to support initiatives which increase the visibility of female role models in science.
This calendar has been made as a response to the disasterous European Commission “Science: It’s a Girl Thing” video (see here
if you dare, but also visit the great website
this was supposed to promote).
