Inequality on the ground and in space...

At the conference I am not at this year, FemaleScienceProfessor relates how a cabbie assumed her husband was the scientist and she was in town for the shopping. She has a great reply.

NPR ran a story this morning about how many female astronauts can't do space walks because they don't make the space suits in small sizes. I would have written something about it, but Skookumchick beat me to it.
