“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 and serves as a powerful catalyst for increased 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 under representation of women in chemistry.  It is outlined in C&EN’s Sept 11 2017 edition.
