1/ Kudos to the editors of @TheIJSRM for holding a debate on "Sex and the Census", and to @inductivesteps and @sally_hines for taking part. Excellent that it is #freetodownload. Please read and RT! Open debate is the way forward #academicfreedom #sex #gender #statistics
2/ My paper argues that it is vital not to muddle sex and gender identity. Sex is a vital demographic variable, and gender identity should be asked as a separate question. tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…
3/ In response, Andi Fugard puts the case for 'sex is a spectrum'. I disagree, but I found it really useful to see this argument spelled out tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…

New book out this week with @ElgarPublishing, edited with @MungiuPippidi: A Research Agenda for Studies of Corruption. e-elgar.com/shop/gbp/a-res… Great contributors covering where we’ve got to and where we need to go. Quick thread:
2/@MungiuPippidi and @mihaly_fazekas discuss advances in #measurement of #corruption and emphasise importance of developing actionable measures, showing how these can be informed by appropriate indicators.
3/@pmheywood analyses how meanings and modalities of #corruption have changed in line with broader socio-economic developments in a more interdependent world and what this means for future research.

NEW PROJECT ALERT! Introducing the Gender and Covid-19 Reading List. I've pulled together readings to help us keep track of how old scripts about gender rewrite themselves in the age of pandemic.

The Gender and Covid-19 Reading list itself is housed at the @WomenLawWCL #gender #womensrights 2/

Because this is a crisis-in-progress, the Gender and Covid-19 Reading List is a work-in-progress. If you've written something you'd like to see on the list, ping womenlaw@wcl.american.edu. 3/

Today at SFI:

External Professor @DaniSBassett (@Penn) on addressing #inequity in the scientific community caused by #bias in #citation practices—focusing on the evidence of a growing #gender imbalance in the reference lists of #neuroscience research.

santafe.edu/events/citing-…
The proportion of #neuroscience papers with woman first or last authors grew from 1995 to 2018, but the undercitation of female authors actually *increased* in that time.

SFI's @DaniSBassett (@Penn) on #gender #inequity in the scientific community:
Undercitation of #neuroscience research with first or last woman authors appears to be driven predominantly by the reference lists of papers written by male-male teams.

This is not to say, however, that all men undercite women, or that women do not also undercite women:

Thrilled and proud that @PNASNews published our study Today: The Diversity-Innovation Paradox in Science. Find it here: pnas.org/content/early/…. GitHub: github.com/bhofstra/diver…. Short primer: bashofstra.com/diversity-inno…. 1/n
Study by myself, @viveksck, Sebastian Munoz-Najar Galvez, Bryan He, @jurafsky, &Dan McFarland. We study the diversity-innovation paradox: Diversity breeds innovation, yet underrepresented groups that diversify organizations have less successful careers within them. 2/n
Does the diversity-innovation paradox hold for scientists as well? To answer this question, we use text analysis and machine learning as well as US census and dissertations of more than 1.2 million recipients of doctoral degrees from 1977 to 2015. 3/n

Since pretty much everyone under quarantine has to use digitized primary sources, I thought it might be useful to point to #digitalarchives that *explicitly* acknowledge & caution users abt #archivalsilences in their contents, and describe their work to rectify them.

A thread.
1/ A note: Most people appreciate the easiness of online access to archival material, but tend to forget that all #digitization is selective.
2/ This means that what you see online is usually not “everything” that an institution holds abt a topic. It's important to understand the digitized together w the physical. Even if you can't access physical records now, you'll be able to better contextualize what you see online.

A thread on #sexism
I was waiting for the euphoria of #DelhiAssemblyElections2020 to reduce to post this. I am looking out for a job, it is no secret. But, responses to my applications are very less, I don't know why. But a recent one was blatantly sexist. 1/n
This is a #bangalorestartup, a #fintech working with banks. Got the founder's number through a good friend, he has been sending me a few leads. I got in touch with the founder (let us call this company X) of X. He asked me to email my resume, which I did. 2/n
Post that, I got a call from his #HR representative, after asking me basic details she asked me a few sexist questions. How many children I have? How old are they? Do they go to school? Who will manage them while I am away? Do I have adequate support to manage them? #Sexism 3/n

At #ClimateJustice panel at #CountdowntoCOP there is recognition that the UK govt has taken on the discourse, but we wait to see the action. Across audience a recognition on the need to centre climate justice in #COP26 & beyond. I am looking forward to hear reflections on #gender
@HarpreetKPaul, an expert on #lossanddamage shares concerns about the lack of movement on the #WIM at a time where #disasters are leaving countries & communities in the global south increasingly & unfairly indebted. We have a moral imperative - #MichaelGove said it himself today
Nick Robins @GRI_LSE & from finance sector explains there is now broad agreement in sector that #ClimateJustice is the right thing to do, AND the necessary thing. #justtransitions must be led by all industries, communities&citizens. Place-based dimension is v.important even in UK

I am so frustrated with the misogyny that is getting perpetuated.

Reported to me by an immigrant guy - who is assimilating to norms - on what is common in a neurosurgery resident office:

Talking about girlfriends’ “b**bs”

....in front of female PAs and med students
1/
Describing women with multiple sexual partners as “human gutters”

U.S. professors, tell him the law has become “gynocentric”

that men need to be afraid and are falsely accused

@TIMESUPHC @choo_ek @janevandis @arghavan_salles

Why #HeforShe matters

2/
Let’s even set aside outrage for a sec

How can you speak of women as “human gutters”, discuss your girlfriend’s “b**bs” at work in front of female med students and PAs

AND claim you are oppressed and need to be scared?

You *are still* openly engaging in sexual harassment

1/10 In this #USIran conflict, we need #FijiMedia #PacificMedia to run analysis pieces dissecting what it means for us in the islands. Our ignorance is frightening. Analysis on the following in layman's language for all people would be greatly appreciated:
2/10

1. #History of #PacificWars - e.g. the world wars and their legacies to articulate generational impact.

2. History of nuclear activity and its impact on island/er(s).

3. #Militarisation in the region and #Demilitarisation efforts over the years.
3/10

4. US military bases in the region and the risks we face as a result (Asia-Pacific).

5. #USIran conflict implications on future of #ClimateChange efforts - particularly important because the few small victories we've had as a region have been hard-won.

The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the world today. It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions. The motion picture can standardize the ideas and habits of a nation.

The CIA is often credited with 'advice' on Hollywood films, but no one is truly sure about the extent of its shadowy involvement. theguardian.com/film/2008/nov/…
A vast swathe of documents revealing the extent of US government influence in Hollywood .. indicating US officials have covertly helped produce at least 800 major movies and 1,000 television shows since 1910. sputniknews.com/us/20170818105…

On the semantics of #sex and #gender:

Since many people still subscribe to mind–body dualism, a popular conception of the difference between sex and gender is that sex is biologically determined, and thus real, while gender is psychological or mental, and thus imagined.
This is simply not true, because all medical and neuroscientific findings indicate that every mental state and condition, including gender identity, is biologically determined. There is no mind independent of the body; rather, mind is caused by the body.
Thus, we can know for certain that gender identity, i.e. the personal sense of one’s own gender, and gender dysphoria, a disagreement between gender identity and sex assigned at birth, have a biological cause even though we still do not know the mechanisms that determine them.

Really thrilled to be at @paulweiss for a conversation between @AnthonyACLU of the @ACLU and @SharonAWeiss of @acrionline.
Both @AnthonyACLU and @SharonAWeiss came to civil rights work from an experience growing up as children of immigrants. Anthony, child of Puerto Rican parents, Sharona the child of immigrants in Israel’s periphery. Succeeded to break thru through #education. Realized disparities.
Rabbi Ayelet Cohen, asks where we are vs. last time. “It’s worse.” — @AnthonyACLU.

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

@Beth_Alize a couple of thoughts / resources that might interest you re: feminism and gender narcissism.

In my book, based on a 19 year marriage to a woman with expert-confirmed narcissistic personality traits, I argued that covert narcissism is a feminine form of the disorder.
As far as I can tell, this was a unique suggestion in narcissism theory. This Mars-Venus interpretation is very intuitive and leads to a simple model that has a strong Occam’s razor appeal. DM if interested, I have a free extra copy I can send you.

I also noted essentially similar traits in the feminists who persecuted me throughout my divorce. I again saw this inadvertently documented in every book/paper I read critical of feminism, though these authors did not recognize this. (Excellent books by @CHSommers)

#Academy2019 @AAN_Nursing Keynote on #belonging: Dr. @LisaColemanPhD explains #Diversity (in the room), #Inclusion (being asked to dance), & #Equity (intentional reflection on history & power), & #Belonging: you can disagree about something & you’re still in the group
Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: You can’t have excellence in #innovation *without* #diversity, #inclusion, #equity *AND* #Belonging

#Academy2019
Dr. Lin Zhan to Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: How do #nurseleaders acknowledge #implicitbias? Dr. Coleman explains we all have implicit bias. On #microaggressions: Even well-intended words can do harm. #Leaders must assess their own biases AND how they’re operationalized in their orgs.

@SimonFanshawe Fairly shocking to find eradication of "mixed wards" By @NHSEngland @NHSImprovmeent was only rebranding exercise & that now they just lie about #male genitalia to #female patients so they have no way to protect themselves. @CMO_England @CNOEngland
@Jochurchill4
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 NHS guidelines:
Grade #1 woman: transwomen with #ladydique
Grade #2 woman: biological female #unraped (of course)
Grade #3 woman: Biological female - rape survivors, it doesnt matter that they can't sleep or scared out of their wits. @Baroness_Nichol
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 @Baroness_Nichol Ideally, of course #Female #Rape survivors (or victims) dont actually show up for medical treatment they need & deserve, freeing up #NHS resources for patients who are not damaged goods & who deserve actual health care.

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

[1/6] 🤚🏽Heads up, Twitter community!✋🏽
Calling all folk who have been asked to be an evidence-giver (e.g. speaker, expert, etc) in a mini-public, like a Citizens’ Jury, Citizens’ Assembly and so on. 🎺We want to hear from you. 🎺
[2/6] ❓Why did you *decline* the invitation? Was it workload? The timing of the event? A bit of imposter syndrome? Hatred of public speaking? Unfamiliarity of the role?
[3/6]❓ Why did you *accept* the invitation? How did you find the experience? Would you be an evidence-giver again? What might have made it easier for you, as an evidence-giver?
