Articles of interest 25/02/2015

Two articles that have appeared in recent days that may be of interest/comment.

The first is an article from Nature describing a study that claims that in the US the 'leaky pipeline' is no longer an issue between graduate and PhD level.

Second is by Selina Todd of Oxford University announcing the creation of a Women in Humanities group, aimed at actively supporting women in academia.

  1. Examining the graph, it looked like this was achieved by having the proportion of women going on to PhD go down while the proportion of men going on to PhD went down much faster.

    Very glad to see gender self-identity issues soften, but I think there are some universal issues still very much at play there.
