I have gleefully been introduced to Congrats, you have an all-male panel!, a blog dedicated to recognizing panels, seminars, and events that bravely manage to ignore the existence of women as academics and experts. It came to my attention because of today’s panel at Brigham Young University about “Women in Math” that happens to exclude a single one of those. (But there will be treats! So that’s cool.)

One commenter noted that he’s in a class taught by one of the featured professors, and even the professor thinks it’s weird… but not weird enough, apparently, to actually push back against it or decline to participate. (BYU happens to have five women on their permanent math faculty, two adjunct professors, and one visiting, but I’m sure they were all busy that day.
