Canadian mathematicians are not women

Post by Renée Bagslint » Thu Jul 26, 2018 9:18 pm

They never learn, do they? Years after the row about the categories "American novelists" and "American women novelists", what do we find in the category "Canadian mathematicians"? Yes, a lot of pages for men and a special subcategory for "Canadian women mathematicians".

Incidentally, I was looking to see if there was an article about Cohl Furey, who was recently profiled in Quanta magazine. There is, although it runs to all of three sentences.

Good catch. They never learn. Whoever set that up probably didn't even realize their bias, and there are too few people who care to check these things anymore.
