Study after study finds that many women feel unwelcome in laboratories and science departments, even after considerable progress in encouraging women to study science and technology fields. As these studies come out, there are almost always skeptics who say that whatever gender imbalance exists could well reflect different choices made, on average, by men and women, or who say that individual men are rising on their merits, not sexism.

But a new study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences offers evidence of bias among scientists -- male and female scientists alike -- against female students. The study was based on evaluations by scientists of hypothetical student applications for a lab manager position, with the application materials identical in every way, except that half of the pool received applications with a male name and the other half received applications with a female name. The faculty members surveyed -- 127 professors in biology, chemistry or physics -- were told that their analyses of the applications would be used to help the students. And they were asked to evaluate the students' competence and "hireability" and to consider how large a salary they would recommend and how much mentoring they would offer the student if hired.

The scientists evaluating these applications (which were identical in every way except the gender of the "submitter") rated the male student more competent, more likely to be hired, deserving of a better salary, and worth spending more time mentoring. The gaps were significant.

I did a study within my occupation as well.  It revealed between men and women with the same qualifications who conducted substandard work, men were much more likely to be fired than the women.  In fact, only one female was released, but she was rehired later.  It also revealed those same women would be shifted from section to section until their supervisors had enough of their incompetence and they were transferred to a different area to begin the process anew.

I wonder what it means...

...many women FEEL unwelcome

There is your problem right there; feminine feelings. Women are always 'feeling' something, oftentimes they 'feel' somethingn that is not even there. You do not know how many times I have been perfectly normal with absolutely nothing wrong or nothing against a particular female yet she has still complained that she 'feels' I am in a bad mood with her or that she 'feels' like there is something wrong with me. I'll bet that it is just the result of women's crazy emotions.

Okay I have to admit, that made me laugh. But at least I have an excuse for it! I'm emotionally crazy because I get that from my unhealthy INFJ mother!

Nope. It's the raging hormones of an adolescent. Stop blaming others for your problem.   Wink

You stand on the precipice of understanding women.

One day we will talk about why people fetishize children, but for now I'll keep on the side of humanity that doesn't think the height of life is a drinking a juice box and eating a tater tot while defecating in their pants.
