No Shit–Women get better funding in Social, uhm, Sciences

From The Onion:

The Sciences Where Women Get as Much Funding as Men

Previous studies have found a significant gender gap in funding for scientific research. No real surprise there—it’s part of a persistent inequality in science academia that manifests itself in massively male-dominated publications, pitifully low representation of women in STEM fields, and insidious gender bias directed to those who do make it through the door.

But a new study in Nature found one area where distribution of funding, at least, isn’t so unfair: social sciences.

“We think that social sciences have been very cognizant of gender and feminist issues for rather long,” said Boyle. “Obviously social sciences is where a lot of this research is undertaken, and has been for decades.”

Just joking, it’s „Nature“, via vice.com.
