Your daughter is inspiring. I hope she achieves her dreams. It’s so hard yet it sounds like she’s come so far already. I’m sure with you help, she will be able to go far. You’ve definitely raised well for her to even come this far. In the science field, in particular, male ego run rampant. It’s hard to keep perspective. But, she maybe surprised that she will have better prospects once she gets to the post doctoral level that people will appreciate her work more than her male counterparts. At that level, many people fall short. It’s less about gender and more about research ideas and results. Wish her the best of luck on her research and career.
