ASBMB survey of young scientists sparks Twitter conversation about gender disparities

January 24, 2013 § Leave a comment

  1. Interesting note from bit.ly/UncG27 – Men outnumber women as applicants for faculty positions in biochem by almost 3:1. #WiS #STEM
  2. Survey suggests due in part to lack of knowledge of family-friendly policies… RT @Ilovepigenetics: @(me) Why are women leaving before TT?
  3. *********************************************************************************************************************
  4. @Ilovepigenetics @biochembelle Had a boss who’d let the women do the work, then take the credit, women never fought back ….
  5. @AjazSadia @Ilovepigenetics @biochembelle used to say if you were any good, you’d be raising family than working in the lab. So.
  6. @biochembelle That is the biggest sign about how TT is something I know has no interest to me based on how it’s set up. Despite the science
  7. *********************************************************************************************************************
  8. @biochembelle A TT job demands that your career comes first-TT women don’t have ‘wives’ at home making dinner. Whose career comes first?
  9. @dave_bridges @biochembelle I have seen many career focused women choose to follow their husband’s career. It’s more than dinner, housework.
  10. @Ilovepigenetics @dave_bridges Yep. Many surveys that say women still shoulder larger share of domestic duties in dual-career households.
  11. *********************************************************************************************************************
  12. .@biochembelle @Wikisteff We’ve got a majority of F in our biochem major here at AU. Fac used to be 1:1 M:F. After recent turnover is 4:2
  13. @biochembelle @dave_bridges Big disparity in # of female faculty. UofM A2 has many in powerful positions; other institutes not so much.
  14. @Wikisteff At our institution, Chemistry is 53% male over last three years. Institution is 43% male over same time. @biochembelle
  15. Though, I think there remain disparities in attitudes/pressures vs. official institutional policies. @biochembelle @Ilovepigenetics
