Must read this Times article on apalling sexism in academia. Check it out:

At Harvard, for example, there are 149 men with tenure in the natural sciences and just 13 women. Cynthia Friend, the chairwoman of the chemistry department, remains the only woman who has ever received tenure in chemistry at Harvard.(By comparison, women have done better in the humanities departments at Harvard, where 39 women and 98 men have tenure.)
Bold is mine, natch.

Did you catch that: 39 tenured women, 98 tenured men in the humanities at Harvard. I'm sorry--isn't that what the Fox newsroom is supposed to look like? Yikes.

It's all about the numbers--we don't even have to make an argument at this point.
