Gender bias in Evolution

A post by Evolgen examines why Teri Markow resigned as president of the Society for the Study of Evolution. It appears that Teri felt that "women were not adequately considered for the editorship of its journal, Evolution." I've worked with Teri: she's extremely dedicated, hard-working, and forthright; I have no doubt that if she felt something was amiss, it probably was.

For more on gender issues in modern science, see PZ's great post "The cost of being a woman in science".
