From Naomi Rachel

I teach Writing For Science and Society – an advanced course for upper division students who are majoring in the sciences, engineering and computer science. I always have far more male students in my classes. They were assigned to review an article published in “The New Yorker” by Carolyn Kormann. ( It’s a wonderful article on frugal science titled “Through The Looking Glass”)  The majority of my male students referred to the author as “he” although the author’s name was on the top of the assignment sheet. None of my female students thought Carolyn was a man’s name.
