    I often think this is part of the problem: that men are absent from such meetings! Of course it is very important that women meet and give each other advice, support, and can meet appropriate role models. But if men are not invited or ignore those meetings, it will only take longer for them (and all of us) to realize and defeat the gender bias. I always feel that in the struggle for equality we too often forget that equality means the same for both sites. And that it is no fight – a “fight for women’s rights” is per se a wrong statement (a general remark, not based on this text) – we need cooperation, from both sides.

    Therefore, congratulations and thanks to the author for making a step in the right direction!
