Here's a question for every woman who's ever loved science but didn't pursue it as a career: Why? Eileen Pollack has wrestled with that question for most of her life, and she tried to find the answer in her new book, "The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science Is Still a Boys' Club." Pollack spoke with Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti, originally on Radio Boston.
