The academic, writer, broadcaster and ‘science storyteller’ Professor Alice Roberts shares what’s important to her – and humanity as a whole

Sexism makes me angry; it’s hard to get perspective when you’re in the middle of it, so you tend to assume, ‘I must be rubbish.’ I was once told I didn’t get a promotion because I didn’t have ‘gravitas’, but I was already working at that level. Did it mean that I didn’t have a beard or some other male appendage? We all need to tackle gender bias, as it’s unconscious and so pervasive, with women as well as men. Studies have shown that when people have seen CVs with names that suggest males and females, that the males will be scored more highly – and it’s not just men doing that.

About Psychologies

It’s all about love this month. In our 18-page Dossier we look at the reality of making your relationships work once the rush of lust wears off. We encourage you to choose to love each other, imperfections and all. For those who are struggling, we’re giving away our 30-day ‘How to save your relationship’ online course with relationship expert Sarah Abell– worth £47. We are also looking at how to navigate bringing up teenage children with our coaching columnist Kim Morgan, plus discover a new way to deal with grief - over dinner! Gratitude is the theme of our special gift guide for Christmas and beyond. We’ve partnered with Etsy, our favourite online portal for unique gifts made with love. Who and what are you grateful for this month?
