Thanks for the great links, Peggy!! After reading the Feministe piece, I blogged about the ongoing issue of the ivory ceiling and overcoming sexism in the sciences and in the U. at my own blog. I'd welcome folks checking it out ane letting me know what you think: http://professorandparent.blogspot.com/2008/07/inequity-perception-and-hope-for-women.html.
