This issue hits close to home, I have a friend who dropped out of her science studies because she couldn't take the harassment and stigmatism attached to being female and studying a vocation which has been historically male-dominated. There are quite a few female scientists out there, always have been but their number pale in comparison to men. No amount of support from friends could help her in this case and she now does care work, a more "socially accepted" job for a woman... Nothing about that sits right with me, not one bit.
As you may expect, I fully support this movement.
