French women’s rights minister accused of racism over term ‘negro’

French women’s rights minister accused of racism over term ‘negro’ | critical reasoning | Scoop.it
Laurence Rossignol provokes anger by comparing women who wear burqas to ‘negroes’ who supported slavery in the US
iPamba's insight:
The bigger problem is the analogy she stands behind that is as racist as it is Islamophobic. And why the distant gaze over to the US? Slavery is as important in the history of France. It was as institutionalized then as open contempt for women wearing hijabs and burqas is now. It's no less misogynistic coming from a French woman minister.

How to Level the Playing Field for Women in Science

How to Level the Playing Field for Women in Science | critical reasoning | Scoop.it

The "baby penalty" in academe could be eased with four key reforms.

 

The good news: Many more women than ever before are completing Ph.D.’s in the sciences. Back in 2000, when I was appointed the first female dean of the graduate division at the University of California at Berkeley, I was delighted to learn that about half of the incoming doctoral students in the biological sciences—and more than 30 percent in heavily male fields like chemistry and engineering—were women. However, I also noticed that in most of the science departments where young women were eagerly enrolling, very few of the faculty members were female.
