“I’m very familiar with the narrow set of parameters for ‘acceptable’ dress and behavior among women and female-assigned people in STEM. We’re supposed to look polished — but not too polished, or we’re read as prissy girls who don’t want to get our hands dirty in the lab. We’re supposed to be attractive — but not too attractive, or we’re viewed as a distraction and face liability in the field. We’re supposed to be feminine and smile a lot — but not too much, or our numerous male coworkers assume we’re pushovers. Gendered double standards aren’t exclusive to STEM, but for women who work in those fields, they’re an unavoidable reality.”

“Seven hundred million photographs and videos are shared on Snapchat every day. Every minute, another hundred hours of video are added to YouTube, and nearly thirty thousand photographs appear on Instagram. Facebook mounts four thousand photographs every second. ‘The miraculous is everywhere,’ a Sprint ad for the iPhone promises. ‘We can share every second in data dressed as pixels, a billion roving photojournalists uploading the human experience, and it is spectacular.’ And it is spectacular. But a billion roving photojournalists are uploading, too, the unending, unsparing collective misery of humanity.”

—Jill Lepore on summer, death, and the Internet.

A good friend turned me on to the Drive soundtrack and thus, the film, awhile back. I’ve had this song on repeat for months.

“A moving tribute to James Foley and Steven Sotloff on the last night of screenings at Visa Pour L’Image, Perpignan. Hundreds of journalists, many of whom were friends and colleagues of the two were invited on stage at the evening’s end.” —Andrew Quilty.

We’re delighted for Professor Maryam Mirzakhani, the first female recipient of the prestigious Fields Medal in mathematics. In this long overdue landmark, Professor Mirzakhani has been commended for her work in complex geometry.
The mathematics community is hopeful that this will encourage more girls and young women to pursue careers in the field.
