  1. That’s great, but I really wish someone had stepped up *in the Q+A* and pressed the speaker for doing what they did.

  2. I want to second what Rachel (2:27pm) said. I have seen this kind of thing happen before in Q&A, and on at least some occasions a senior person has pressed the speaker to address the female grad student’s question. To be clear, what they have done has not been to restate the question, but often to say things like, “I don’t think you answered [female grad student]’s question/objection, which I think is quite interesting for [reason].”
