Questions, this week's three

  1. Has anything changed? (Think of this asked in the most despairing tone of voice imaginable.)

  2. Women's work = devalued work; devalued work is given to women. Does one break the cycle more easily by re-valuing women, or by re-valuing work independent of who performs it?

  3. Creditably, Margolis and Fisher focus on what we have to do for girls and young women to keep them in high-tech fields. This skates perilously close to victim-blaming, however, as Light's article amply demonstrates; there's really only so far women can go faced with a deeply hostile and dismissive atmosphere. So what do men have to do, hm? And how does anyone convince them to do it?
