Researchers found that university science professors widely regard female students as less competent than male ones
from 2012, here’s the actual article
“All participants received the same materials, which were randomly assigned either the name of a male (n = 63) or a female (n = 64) student; student gender was thus the only variable that differed between conditions.”
“assessed: (i) perceived student competence; (ii) salary offers, which reflect the extent to which a student is valued for these competitive positions; and (iii) the extent to which the student was viewed as deserving of faculty mentoring…In each case, the effect of student gender was significant (all P < 0.01), whereas the effect of faculty participant gender and their interaction was not (all P > 0.19).”
plain english: female students are discriminated against in science simply for being women… by male AND female faculty.. in every measure assessed.
