Trigger warming: extreme violence against women, discussion of murder, suicide, online bullying

As a sexologist, I’ve been writing and educating about sexual double standards for years; the age-old damned if you do, damned if you don’t predicament women face about their…

#YesAllWomen tweets reveal persistent sexism in science By Fiona MacDonald via ScienceAlert. | Image Credit: First three images via ScienceAlert via Twitter, fourth image via Twitter.

Reading through the tweets on the #yesallwomen hashtag is heartbreaking, illuminating and frustrating all at the same time. 

And if you’re a woman, you’ll be nodding along to nine out of 10 of them.

The hashtag started after it was revealed that 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, lead suspect in the Isla Vista shooting, had shared extremely disturbing and misogynistic views in a video posted shortly before the attack.

Instead of flooding the internet with Rodger-specific fury, Twitter took the discussion to the next level and remind the world that sexism is still very much present across society, and #YesAllWomen experience it.

Among those tweets were many honest and confronting admissions of sexism from female scientists, students and communicators.

This isn’t the first time the issue of misogyny in science has been brought up, but it’s always sad and shocking to see certain opinions persist when females have come such a long way in the field.

As ScienceAlert is staffed almost entirely by women, we though we’d add a few of our own:

Because only 44 out of 835 Nobel Prize laureates are women.

Because senior scientists would still rather hire males, and pay them more.

Because people are still shocked when we tell them ScienceAlert is run by women.

Because that last tweet I screenshotted, via Hannah Hart, really hits home for myself and so many women I’ve talked to over the last few days [much less ever] when it comes to pointing out sexism in general, especially within the STEM world. 

15 year old Canadian, Maya Burhanpurkar, a Grade 10 student at Barrie North Collegiate Institute, won lunch, with Canadian Astronaut Col. Chris Hatfield, for her project titled “The Time-Integral of Distance: Uncovering a New Property of Fundamental Physics.” The work has applications ranging from fluid dynamics to fighter-jet avionics.

“By using the time integral of distance in the computation of certain aspects of aircraft, you can yield dramatic improvements in computational efficiency, which can result in far more efficient aircraft and environmentally friendly airplanes,” Burhanpurkar said.

Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.

Here are some excerpts from Elliot Rodger’s ‘manifesto’. as you can see, serious racism as well as misogyny. This wasn’t the result of a mental illness, this is all-consuming entitlement. Obviously the shit we are teaching kids isn’t working. Spend more time teaching boys that virginity doesn’t matter, that they don’t ‘deserve’ a girl at the end of the day because they are human beings, not prizes. That seeking help and advice doesn’t make you weak or a ‘pussy’. Please, please stop this from happening again.
