I would vote to broaden the name...most of the discussion is with regard to
issue women face in science or academia...not biology particularly...besides
getting the opinion of the engineering and physical science women would be very
cool...I don't know for sure but I would imagine there are more women in bio
than women in some of those field (this may be an incorrect assumption) but I
think we could offer a good haven for other women in science as well.
