It will never cease to amuse me that UKIP seem to have got their colour scheme from the Standing At The Back Dressed Stupidly And Looking Stupid Party from Blackadder.

Some women want to be house wives and some women want to be Harvard professors and some women want to be porn stars and some women want to be nuns and some women want to be surgeons and there is nothing wrong with anyone’s profession I am sick of people being rude to women about their professions oh my god

since when has nunnery been a career?

New website, CodeBabes.com, features computer code “tutorials”starring hypersexualized women. Their tagline is “We’re hot, but learning to code is even hotter!,” and every video title has the word “virgin” in it. 
We’re #NotBuyingIt.

THE IMAGE IN THE OP DOESN’T REALLY GIVE ENOUGH CREDIT TO HOW GROSS THIS SHIT IS

jesus CHRIST STOP NERDS

This stuff harms women in STEM fields so much, including girls and young women wanting to get into STEM fields.
In my freshman year of high school, I took a tech/engineering class that was supposed to help me with coding (I want to be a web developer/designer). I ended up being the only girl in the class (the two others dropped out after the first class). The boys in the class harassed me, made sexual jokes about me constantly, threatened me, and even made rape threats/jokes about me in class. One time, I asked for help from the teacher on an assignment and, while he was helping me, one of the students said the teacher was going to rape me (the teacher said nothing to them).
I was freakin’ scared; I went to my school counselor asking her to do something. I was told to get over it. No one in the school did anything, I was told this was expected (the ol’ “boys will be boys”), so I never told my parents and kept silent from then on. I stuck through the class and managed a B, but I can’t even begin to imagine what other women (especially young girls) go through pursuing this and other STEM fields. I was lucky enough to have a supporting family, my mom and dad gave me enough money to take online courses with Women’s Coding Collective. I finally found an accepting community. I’m in college continuing to pursue web development. Many other young women aren’t as lucky. Stop isolating, marginalizing, and pushing women and girls away from STEM fields.

A toast to these great astronomers!

Read about Annie Jump Cannon, Henrietta Swan Leavitt, and Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin

Wine and honoring women in science.
Cosmos doing science education right.

I keep meaning to add, because no one seems to mention it: both Annie Jump Cannon and Henrietta Swan Leavitt were both deaf.

I feel like it’s important to acknowledge that part of their histories, because I don’t often see folks talking about disability history wrt science stuffs (without having to look for it), and it’s even more rare to see it wrt women in science.

…and the episode of cosmos does acknowledge that both those women were deaf, and puts a certain amount of emphasis on it; i was pretty pleased to see them not omit that fact.
