It can’t be about research in your case

Posted: November 10, 2011 by Jender in failure to take women seriously

When a male colleague was invited by a prestigious research-oriented department/university to visit for a semester, the chair of our department took this as a sign that he was in high demand and would be recruited away from the department. He put him up for early tenure and promotion. A few years later, when the same prestigious department/university invited me to visit for a semester, the same chair of our department completely dismissed my value as a research by commenting to me that “they are interested in finding people who are good teachers.”
