A Chip on Her Shoulder: A Documentary Play about Women in Engineering

Student Life
For NYU Community

a chip on her shoulder

A Chip On Her Shoulder investigates the experiences of women in engineering and stimulates the conversation of what it means to be a visible and/or invisible identity in the field. It engages directly with engineers through participatory interviews used to create the script and form a collective story of the struggles and accomplishments of women in the field. The play presents both technological and personal issues and accomplishments in the field, tackles discrimination and bias through subversive musical comedy, and celebrates inclusive ideas for the future of engineering. Refreshments will be served!
