About No Belles
"No Belles" is a performance of the stories of women scientists who have and have not received the Nobel Prize.
A significant disparity in our society is the number of women pursuing careers in STEM. An oft-cited reason for this imbalance is the lack of good role models. The Portal Theatre group’s “No Belles” makes visible the significant contributions of women in science. Its broad reach of topics is a powerful catalyst for interactions between the sciences and the community. Notably, a performance of “No Belles” was hosted by the ACS in 2017 at the Fall National meeting as an adjunct to a symposium on the underrepresentation of women in chemistry. It is outlined in CE&N’s Sept 11 2017 edition.
The Silicon Valley and California ACS local sections are teaming up to host performances of “No Belles” on six college campuses around the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas in October.
Performances will be hosted jointly by a variety of organizations on each campus, including Deans’ offices, chemistry clubs, Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) and American Women in Science (AWiS) chapters, STEM and STEAM programs, and departments of chemistry, gender studies, and theater arts. The cost of offering these performances to members of university campuses and their surrounding communities is supported in part by generous donations from individuals, local companies, academic departments, and ACS grants.
Silicon Valley ACS performances:
- Oct 14: Santa Clara University
- Oct 15: Stanford University
- Oct 16: UC Santa Cruz
- Oct 17: San Jose State University
California ACS performances
- Oct 12: Dominican College
- Oct 13: Mills College
Each performance is followed by a talk-back session and reception with the cast to foster discussion of the issues illuminated in the play.
