Addressing unintended disrespect in your professional community

In writing on July 11, 2013 at 8:30 pm

As a woman, I am invariably in the minority at the scientific conferences I attend. I’ve encountered sexist comments and actions at those events. I didn’t like them, but I dealt with them in as professional a way as I could manage.

In my experience, attendance at science writing conferences is closer to gender parity and I’ve encountered very little sexism there.
