they were warning us
Alicia Menendez - The View
I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.
The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.
this is why i make it a point to openly welcome women in my science classes. there’s a lot of assholes, even in animal behavior and ecology (which is seen kind of as a semisoft science anyhow) and i’ve seen countless women and girls drop classes or fail out because they didn’t feel safe being there and it’s fucking terrible.
This just made my day.
LOOK WHAT I FOUND AT WATERSTONES!
