    hearing that their lack of advancement was their own fault.  Women started at entry level and mostly stayed at entry level throughout their careers.  

    Several women measured the floor space of the labs they had been assigned when they first started. They compared it to the sized of the labs the new boys got.  Guess what?  Guess who got stuck on more committee assignment that did not lead to tenure?  Guess who got stuck teaching almost all the large entry level courses in universities that require research?  Did the old-boy network value the effort the 'girls' put into teaching?

    The little remarks made by the senior faculty to females and the difficulty females can have in obtaining routine information probably was not helpful either.
