okay tbh the most exhausting thing about being a feminist is when one of your dude friends goes “are you a feminist?” for w/e reason and you’re like “yeh” & they take that as an invitation to debate you on every tired argument they’ve ever heard on 4chan
like please stop making my existence a debate, i’m just trying to eat this take-out and watch re-runs of project runway
One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.
"The gender gap doesn’t exist"
"We don’t need feminism"
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"
I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.
