    A mathematical explanation of why women in tech experience more sexist incidents than men.

    The Petrie Multiplier was devised by Karen Petrie to explain why an attack on sexism is NOT an attack on men. This blog post explains it with some nice pictures/animations. (The mathematics applies to other minority groups too.)

    Mild content note for discussion of rape: So apparently someone at a high-profile news site wrote a piece about why college women shouldn’t drink alcohol (because that’s how you get yerself raped), which I will bother neither to read nor to link to, but here’s a good parody of it.

    Also, a post about why it matters when people misgender Chelsea Manning.

    “The Guardian Princesses” – Indiegogo campaign:

    http://igg.me/at/GuardianPrincesses

    The Guardian Princesses are leaders who protect people and other living beings. They are a group of racially and culturally diverse heroines who model compassion and intelligence, as well as the power of knowledge and collective action. Our stories move away from a focus on external beauty of the princesses, and emphasize what princesses can do for others.
