Thanks for posting this interesting article, June.
One thing that strikes me is that there is a clear division
between a relatively large group who see some problems, and a
steady about 25% who don't. Did you collect any data about the
ages/stages of the respondents? My hypothesis would be that the
younger women are more likely to feel that they have not suffered
discrimination. I think that reflects that the doors are now
open at the student and postdoc level; about 50% of grad students and
postdocs that I see are likely to be women. I also think that
reflects a lot of discussion on this group.
