0My Summary

Our brains are complicated pattern-finding machines.  There is a long history of a pattern that associates men with science and math.  We must work very hard and conscientiously to avoid small, hidden biases that seem harmless until viewed in aggregate.

And once we fix gender (and race) bias, think about another dominant bias that no one seems to be ashamed to admit having.  Everyone seems to agree math is hard.  Is it really any harder than any other intellectual exercise?  How much do we retard each other's and overall human intellectual development by hanging on to these phantom biases?
