Brazil Now A Global Leader In Gender Equality In Science

Surprising news today: Brazilian women are leading the world when it comes to a key measurement on science, surpassing the ranking of the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union.

Yay! :heyhey:

At long last, something to be proud about in this country that does not involve soccer! :news:


Quote
Wednesday's report offers optimism to Brazilian women's rights monitors, but that optimism should be tempered. Across the countries compared, the study found that, compared to men, women tend to have a lower scholarly output on average. (That is, on average, women publish fewer papers per researcher than men.)
And although on average women and men tend to have similar citation and download impacts, in Brazil, women's articles are still cited less frequently than their male counterparts' articles.
[...]
Despite Brazilian women's successes in publishing scientific articles, as in other countries, unequal pay remains a persistent issue in Brazil. In 2013, the World Bank found that in Brazil, a woman's hour of work is still worth a fourth less than that of a man.

:wtf: :headshake:

I would stay if I were you. If you are even surpassing the normally known liberal countries, you could push for more. As they say, give them an inch and they take a mile.

Being a part of history helps narcissists and nationalists sleep better at night but as far as individual lives are concerned, it does not help pay the bills.

Well said, Silver, that should be on a quote page!

If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.
“Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.” ― Richard P. Feynman
'It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.' - Terry Pratchett
Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

I'm sure they've heard it at least a few times blaring out of someone's car.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
