A Chip on Her Shoulder
“A Chip On Her Shoulder” is a docu-musical investigating the experiences of women, trans people, and other minorities in the field of engineering. Engineers impact our homes, our transportation, our food, and almost every advance we experience in our ever changing world, yet only 14% of engineers are women. When presenting a reading at a NYU conference the audience also noted, “Engineering is both emblematic and worse than society as a whole in terms of sexism.” ACOHS investigates the experience of women and trans people in Engineering and stimulates the conversation of what it means to be a visible and/or invisible identity in the field. It engages directly with engineers through participatory interviews to create the script. The show utilizes an eight person cast to tell the stories of over 25 people from all over the country.
