Ooooo big call on this one Telomerase

And drop out if the environment is not friendly enough

!! I don't necessarily agree that women are any more sensitive to an unfriendly/uncomfortable work environment than men. In fact, the only people in my department to leave for personality clash reasons have been men (in the last 4 years I've been around anyway).


I meant family friendliness, leelee.
Some institutes are more accustomed or tolerant to young mothers than others.



hehe my group has 7 women and no men... such a peaceful environment to work in :)

I have seen labs with 100% female population and believe me, it can't be good :)
A friend used to say it should be compulsory at least a 3F:1M ratio, otherwise it becomes a extremely twisted working environment.

Someone said that a tall strong male has more advantage in applying for a job in a lab than a short weak female, such as minnie. :rolleyes:

don't worry. that's alright, don't you think it's best for the strong tall guy to do all the the heavy lifting jobs? :)
as it refers to jobs in general most places have strict policies on no discromination on gender, religion, sexual preferences, and others i can't remember right now.

I agree!! When I first started in this lab it was 7F: 1M. ARG! Women can be such b*&^es!!! The one male was the PI. At least we now have a new post doc who is male :)

In german we'd say "Hahn im Korb" translated as "cock of the roost" or "rule the roost"

During a visit today I noticed that there were a lot of females at the lab I visitied.

I saw only 4 male workers there and 9 female.

And supringly al the males made critical mistakes while working , the females only 1.

They didnt work aseptically when they had to etc... really strange how they worked there.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
