Careers in Crime: Forensic science, as portrayed on TV, is attracting more women than men

RICHMOND, Va. — Kelly Johnson snips pieces from a bloodstained, blue-stripe shirt, then swabs the neck and armpits for sweat. Down the hall, Samantha Glass watches as a chemical reaction reveals a fingerprint on a juice bottle.

In the state’s Eastern lab, Julie Price fires a .45-caliber pistol into a long metal water tank.

Unlike their counterparts on TV, they’re not wearing low-cut shirts or stiletto heels, and their hair and makeup aren’t always perfect. These are the real women of forensic science, and there are plenty of them.

  1. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours as of
    late, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
