I wrote a rather popular post on how I thought Randy Schekman was a hypocrite, but of course, hypocrisy is not limited to genomics.
A committee of politicians in the UK, the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, has called for action over the “dearth” of female scientists.
Take a look at the committee membership. Nine men, two women. Ridiculous.
I agree with their message, whole heartedly, but they rather lack credibility when their own house membership is so skewed.
