The inevitable backlash about Strumia's pro-male Physics lecture has begun, with a few mostly privileged males insisting he spoke 'the truth' and demanding women disprove his claims. Well those women are too busy doing great science so this thread aims to help. #womeninSTEM1. Claiming 'the history of physics is male' is meaningless and proves nothing. For much of the history of physics most universities refused to educate women. What chance dud they have??
