We will virtually meet to discuss sexism in science and society as we read the book Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story. This 2017 book by science journalist Angela Saini discusses the effect of sexism on scientific research, and how that sexism influences social beliefs.
