Does this lab coat make me look fat? Response to sexist comments made during Society for Neuroscience

 

 

Here is my response to sexist comments made during the recent Society for Neuroscience conference. “Even more troubling than Maestripieri’s adolescent wailing is how some women have tacitly accepted his subjugating rhetoric. Rebuttals in which women say that they “know plenty of beautiful female neuroscientists” or insist, “Hey, I’m not ugly!,” miss the point to such a degree that even our advocates can’t advocate for us.”  The rest can be read here. I encourage you to weigh in and share your comments here or on The Chronicle of Higher Education.
