Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
"It’s death by a thousand cuts. Every day you’re faced with some comment, some snide remark, some inability to get a name on a research paper. And with an accumulation of those experiences, women tend to walk with their feet."
This is a very real thing, sexism in science is alive and well. As a female biopsych major hoping to go into dentistry, I’ve been told numerous times by superiors and advisors that I may want to reconsider my career path, since mine is “more of an old boys’ club” and as a woman I probably won’t even be accepted to grad school.
