Sally sent us a link to this article, which contains some interesting US post-election polling. A few tidbits:
68% of women said they were being treated unfairly in the workplace.
61% of women think there is a gender bias in the media.
And yet only 20% of women are willing to call themselves “feminist”.
“Teachable moment” is the phrase that springs to mind. We’ve got a real opportunity here. Thoughts on how to seize it? (Other than: give shorter titles to your posts!)
A further useful fact for teaching revealed by the poll:
39% of men say that a male is “naturally more suited” to carrying out the duties of the President.
In my experience, that’s the sort of thing all the students insist nobody believes anymore.
