Happy belated new year, y’all!
Welcome to our brand-new server! Took us a bit longer than expected to get moved over, but that’s what happens when our new host has never seen so many gifs in one place before. (We’re number one! We’re number one!)

I’m very interested in exposing the ways that women are discouraged from taking an interest in STEM fields, so Eileen Pollack’s The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science Is Still a Boys’ Club was an automatic add to my to-read list.
