Welcome to Double X Science. This site exists to bring science to the woman in you, whoever she is, whatever she does. It's not only for women in science, but also for women into science. If you're single, married, dating, a mother, an aunt, a niece, a daughter, a sister, transgendered, born XX, or just feeling womanly...I hope that this site has something of science interest for you.
If you have suggestions for links, ideas, or stories for the site, please let me know.
