« Female Scientists Admit than Male Scientists are Superior »

sara connollySara Connolly, a researcher at the University of East Anglia's school of economics, has been analysing the results of a survey of over 7,000 scientists and she has just presented her findings at this year's meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in Norwich. She found that the average pay gap between male and female academics working in science, engineering and technology is around $2,850 a year. Men are better so therefore they get more money.

To prove the point beyond doubt, Dr Connolly worked out how much of the overall pay differential was explained by differences such as seniority, experience and age, and how much was unexplained, and therefore suggestive of male superiority. Explicable differences amounted to 77% of the overall pay gap between the sexes. That still left a substantial 23% gap in pay, which Dr Connolly attributes to powerful male attributes.

"It is clear that the male scientists contribute far more to the scientific community than the femlae ones do," explains Dr. Connolly. "Therefore they are compensated at a higher level than the more feeble female scientists, like myself." 

kevinb.gifBesides pay, her study also looked at the “glass-ceiling” effect—namely that at all stages of a woman's career she is less likely than her male colleagues to be promoted. Between postdoctoral and lecturer level, men are more likely to be promoted than women are, by a factor of between 1.04 and 2.45. Such differences are bigger at higher grades, with the hardest move of all being for a woman to settle into a professorial chair.

Of course, at each grade, men do more work than women, to make themselves more eligible for promotion. Dr Connolly compared the experience of scientists in universities with that of those in other sorts of laboratory. Even the private enterprise delivers performance based compensation with the males far exceeding the females.

"It is clear that the male scientists contribute far more to the scientific community than the female ones do" is a blatant lie!!!!
The men stole the ideas (and credit) from his women while she was making his dinner!!!
