Action Alert | Ladies Night for Astrophysics
There are so many things wrong with this. Never mind that the 4th International Conference on Astrophysics and Particle Physics was organized by an all-male committee, but what were they thinking offering “women scholars” a discounted rate? Probably not “women are paid less to do the same jobs as men, but their expertise is valuable, so maybe we should offer them a discounted admission rate.” Sarah Gallagher’s snarky response, though? Totally worth the full price of admission.
With an all-male organizing committee and discounted admission for women, as @scgQuasar said, the 4th International Conference on Astrophysics and Particle Physics is like ladies night for physics. #genderavenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/action-alert-ladies-night-for-astrophysics
