From Anonymous

I am a white male who, during my student days more than 50 years ago, applied for a part-time job at the Berkeley Radiation Lab in the  hills just above the UC campus.  The job involved microscopic examination of photographic plates that had been exposed to nuclear reactions in their particle accelerator (you have probably seen the peculiar lines and spirals that result).  I interviewed in the cyclotron facility, by a guy that I presume was a scientist, and he bluntly told me I was not suited for it.  He said the job was tedious and boring, the kind of thing that only women were fit to do.
