- A quick post about a girl who discovered a supernova (she's the youngest ever!)
- A longer piece about a class of 8 year olds who got their scientific bee study published
And then some more sad stuff in the form of a round-up of the links I've seen lately about women leaving academia. Poignant for me given that I've got a contract that'll take me away from academia... although I'm actually leaving mostly for the "work that has impact" reason and not so much for the others.
And then one thing that I didn't write (but I wish I had):
Let's say that fighting sexism is like a chorus of people singing a continuous tone. If enough people sing, the tone will be continuous even though each of the singers will be stopping singing to take a breath every now and then. The way to change things is for more people to sing rather than for the same small group of people to try to sing louder and never breathe.
Isn't that just the way of it? Thanks Mary for sharing that one.
