Thanks for the mention, looking forward to the upcoming posts this month 🙂
In March we will be publishing posts from our Women in Academia series….
We are quite excited about March here on PhD Life blog as we will be running “Women in Academia” series of post. Is this really something we still need to talk and write about in 2016?
Yes, we feel it is.
It was not that long ago that Dr Tim Hunt called for gender-segregated labs and I believe that a lot of women in academia face such views from their colleagues. For many of them this might be one of the reasons for ultimately leaving academia for good. Those that stay, according to some studies, need to do more work to be competitive with their male colleagues, and when employed might earn less or receive negative feedback more often, due to their gender.
Yes, we feel we should continue talking and writing about this.
