Science and engineering hall of fame lacks female nominations

I honestly didn't even know that there *was* a process. It just kinda... happened.

Prof. Illes had asked that the committee reopen its nomination process after this year’s nominees were all male. Her request was declined by the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, which curates the hall of fame and oversees the nomination and induction process.

“We were aware of Professor Illes’s concern about the lack of women being nominated and inducted into the hall of fame and we are certainly looking into ways of remedying this in the future,” said Olivier Bouffard, a spokesman for the museum.
