The Everyday Sexism in STEM project has been created to provide a platform for women and their male allies in STEM to document the instances of sexism that they face and observe everyday. This is a forum where all stories are welcome, from the most outrageous displays of gender discrimination to the most subtle and normalized. It is our hope that documenting these stories will expose the myth that sexism in STEM is uncommon and will provide the women who experience it with a sense of community. By sharing here, you will provide evidence that gender bias is real and ubiquitous, you will let other women know they are not alone or isolated in their experiences, and you will establish that it is okay to talk about it.
When you submit a story on this page it will be emailed to the administrators, who will check only that it is not spam before posting it to the page. We will receive only the information about you that you choose to include. It is our hope to use these stories in climate and diversity workshops to provide concrete examples of sexism in the STEM community. If you do not want your story to be used, please feel free to indicate this by checking the appropriate box.
This project was inspired by but is unaffiliated with The Everyday Sexism project.
