As scientists we must speak out about this, there is no reason for these antiquated attitudes to continue in any field.

I too had hoped that such discriminatory practices would have long disappeared, but unfortunately still encounter it in this (conferences) and other (appointments, awards, committees, panels, etc) realms of science myself. I’ve heard it being “excused” as folks, usually senior males, being “well-intentioned but oblivious” (and have seen this behavior first-hand) but have also been faced with the more direct misogynistic approach. All success to your efforts.

This is just the latest example of a very unfortunate common occurrence. As with the ACS Colloids 2014 roster, here is another example from the Materials Research Society, International Conference of Young Researchers on Advanced Materials (all plenary, invited and awards lectures were male):

I hope that by signing this petition I will encourage all members of the chemistry community to fairly represent the work of both genders in all scientific discussions and meetings.

20 years ago I attended an EMBO meeting with an all male speakers list. Although I was a new assistant professor, I let my displeasure be known to all of the meeting organizers. That was the last EMBO meeting on the subject to not have the best speakers, both male and female. This blatant discrimination that is still going on must end NOW!

Thanks for adding your voice.

Sexist science is bad science. Period.
