That’s the title of an excellent Forbes article by Christina Hoff Sommers. Gender bias in academia, and especially in science, has taken on the trappings of a religion (just like global warming): Question it, and you’ll be attacked for undermining the faith.
She concludes: “Now any engineering, physics, math or computer-technology program that moves too slowly toward gender parity is inviting a government investigation and loss of funding. The nation’s leading programs are under pressure to adopt gender quotas and rein in their competitive, hard-driven, meritocratic culture — a culture that has made American science the mightiest in the world.”
More collateral damage from the the egalitarian mania that grips Washington.
