    For more information and to follow our journey visit: www.TheBeardedLadyProject.com. The Bearded Lady Project: Challenging the Face of Science’s mission is twofold. First, to celebrate the inspirational and adventurous women who choose to dedicate their lives in the search of clues to the history of life on earth. And second, to educate the public on the inequities and prejudices that exist in the field of science, with special emphasis on the geosciences. The vision for this project is to complete a short live-action documentary as well as to develop and display a touring portrait series. We hope our film and portrait series will inspire young women to pursue a career in geoscience. In an effort to do all that we can, both film and portrait series will dedicate their proceeds to a scholarship fund to support future female scientists.
