Posted: April 19, 2011 by Jender in ignoring women

I was on the job market in the mid-2000s. I interviewed at a department that had one active woman faculty member (and another woman on the roster who had no involvement in departmental goings-on). At the dinner following my talk, I was told that the decision to offer me a job had been made in the break after the talk and before the Q&A. It was made, specifically, in the men’s room. The person who told me hastened to assure me that the woman faculty member had been consulted immediately after the decision was taken, and it was all right with her.
