    I mean, why wouldn't women be great scientists? It is brainwork and character, and they have a brain and character.

    We no doubt evolved as co-hunter/gatherers, which we were for 98% of our time as a species. Doubtless the prejudice against women in science started when they were saddled with childrearing responsibilities while the men worked the agricultural fields. To which of course, one must place a fair amount of blame on organized religion which constantly stressed a patriarchal heirarchy.

    An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head. -- Eric Hoffer
