John Schwenkler has been doing an on-line survey, and the initial data is disturbing. As Schwenkler points out: "Men are more likely than women to believe that there are sizable numbers of women who have prominent positions in the field, and less likely than women to believe that there are not. Men are more likely than women to believe that women in the field are taken seriously, treated respectfully, and included in networking opportunities, and less likely than women to believe that this is not so." If the full results follow this pattern then it suggests that in this sub-field men are not allowing themselves to notice significant frustration (anger/inequity, etc) among their female peers. (I see no reason to think that this sub-field is atypical.) Hopefully other areas of specialization will follow Schwenkler's lead, and we can have a data-driven conversation among these issues.
