These are good ideas. All they do is better accommodate childbirth, so women aren’t discouraged from applying.

I wouldn’t support that either. It wasn’t what NSF program was doing. Instead, it was things like extending grants (time, not $) in case of childbirth & so on.

This is why religion scholars divide Protestants into conservative & mainline camps (eg, Lutherans, Episcopalians). The former are handmaidens of Trumpist infelicities; the latter, not so much.

How do single people suffer as a result of accommodations for childbirth?

This should get more attention: people marry much later than they used to, but marriage rates for whites haven’t declined in past 50 years ago. This probably also holds for Latinos & Asians, who historically have comparable marriage rates to whites.

We argue for making the academy friendlier to families of both sexes. As for grants, there should be provisions for childbirth like NSF has:

Til I see data, I’m going to remain agnostic as to whether the urban-rural divide has widened over the past couple of decades. Either way, this thread is interesting.

Gotta love some good myth busting in educational psychology: all of these statements are false, listed with the percentage of the general public and educators that still think they are true - fascinating.

This bears repeating given that there are still disbelievers out there.

We had national panel data on faculty from the Survey of Doctorate Recipients that includes demographic information. Kids & spouses present unique roadblocks to women in higher ed; they explain many (but not all) of the zero order gender gaps.

Just days after the similar TitleIX case against Yale, a definite shift in attitudes in the wake of the prevailing female majorities in the student body.
