7/18/2018 - Laurel Beckett (in response to Microaggressions: Evidence of Barriers to Having It All – Individuality, Identity and Equality)

One of my colleagues in TX, a math professor who just retired, Dr. Sue Geller, has published a lovely set of skits based on real micro-inequity experiences of women in mathematics. (I’m actually represented in a couple! Certainly experienced enough of this over the years.) A new set was performed each year for a while at the national math meetings, to try to raise the awareness of some of the perpetrators. Amusingly, one of the people portrayed as a particular culprit was overheard to dismiss such things as fiction, would never happen that way. You can find Sue’s set of scripts with introductions here: http://www.math.tamu.edu/~geller/skits.pdf

Why is Trump Off the Hook in MeToo Movement? Because We Let Him Off

October 08, 2018
Think of a political campaign as a trial, with the election as the verdict. The reason President Donald Trump is seemingly immune from the sexual-harassment cultural shift is because, like it or not, voters already found him not guilty. Or at least not guilty enough. By: Danny Westneat
