The Times reporters had no idea what was up and the women stepped in and told them

It’s no secret that some subjects are heavily male-dominated. Take history and anthropology as examples and you will see how big a gap is the male-centered perspective, where women are given very little voice.

Recently, Jennifer Hutchison, author of ‘Rings of Power’ pointed to this problem. A Twitter thread which went viral. “My favorite historical ‘discoveries’ are the ones that male anthropologists/historians *can’t* explain for years only to be immediately answered by a woman when they finally get access,” she tweeted three days ago. wrote

This thread seems to have hit a soft spot in many people and a lively discussion ensued. “If everyone is looking at something from the same angle, we miss the whole picture,” Hutchison concluded, pointing to the fact that science does not give equal access to women’s opinions and representation. Although she can benefit from it in a big way. Read below for the full thread.

Author Jennifer Hutchinson calls out male scientists for denying access to women who can quickly explain historical mysteries they cannot figure out.

To learn more about why women are given so little access and voice in male-dominated professions, we spoke. Dr. Audrey Tang, an award-winning business writer and broadcaster as well as a leadership trainer and coach. Dr. Tang argues that the starting point for men and women in our society is years apart.

“One solution to meritocracy was proposed in an article that said ‘let universities offer places based on a lottery or ballot’… of course the solution was cheeky,” explained Dr Tang. Dr. Tang explained.

“If you feel a twinge of ‘this isn’t fair,’ that’s exactly how unfair the meritocracy system can be to some people,” she added. Rather than claiming that women don’t work hard enough to make their voices heard, we’d do better to ask whether women have exactly the same opportunities to do so in the first place.

“It’s certainly a start that we can start to challenge our own biases and certainly pay men and women equally in the same job, but we can also start to value that. That’s what women and diversity, in general, bring to the boardroom table,” explained Dr. Tang.

Many people supported the author of the thread, and shared their insights into the issue.
