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.
