Most of the nation’s academics and academics of all backgrounds and disciplines were disappointed that President Obama, in the first term of his presidency, had not nominated a single female academic to a senior post in the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
Even when he did, he failed to nominate a single woman, a fact that was not lost on the academy, which is not a bastion of liberal-leaning thought but has historically been a bastions of conservative thought.
And the fact that Obama did not nominate a woman scholar is not surprising: that is a legacy of the first-term White House.
A decade ago, the National Academy of Sciences issued a report recommending that presidents consider appointing more women to science and technology positions, and the academy has repeatedly issued statements about this issue, especially since Trump took office.
But for the past two years, the academy’s president, Robert Wright, has done everything possible to ensure that the academy remains a baston of conservative orthodoxy.
The academy is now an outlier in its approach to science, as evidenced by its decision in 2016 to deny a position to an eminent African-American scholar, Kimberlé Crenshaw, because she was not a member of the academy.
The National Academy is no longer the place for conservative thought, but for what might be called the most conservative view on science and the humanities, which, for the most part, remains in the hands of the men who run the academy and in the White House itself.
And that is why, despite the fact of the Academy’s decision, the decision is now being cited by right-wing commentators, including the president of the American Enterprise Institute, which has called for the dismissal of Wright.
A report by the National Women’s Law Center released last month said that Wright’s leadership of the National Academies has led to a culture of exclusion in the academy as the academy becomes more and more dominated by white men.
This has led, among other things, to an over-representation of white men at the top of the academic ranks.
That over-representedness, the report said, leads to the academy not reflecting the diversity of ideas it seeks to support.
As a result, the center said, “students of color are underrepresented, and scholars of color and women are under-represented at the highest levels of the DOST academy.”
In a January article in the American Sociological Review, Wright wrote that the lack of diversity among the academy was “not a result of the absence of women in science and engineering but a result,” rather, of a lack of “any substantive support for women and girls in STEM.”
He said that the problem was a “culture of white male dominance,” that is, of the “unspoken assumption that women should not be part of a science and technological institution.”
The problem with this “culture” is that, for many years, it has been the belief that women are incapable of “manning the machine,” a belief that has not been challenged.
When the Academy rejected Crenshaws proposal, it also rejected Wright’s own “manners” theory of women’s aptitude.
The fact that the president is now trying to discredit this idea and dismiss it shows the extent to which he has adopted it.
Wright’s views, then, are not only not based on science but on a belief in a white male supremacy that has existed for decades.
And because Wright has been in the public eye for so long, this has meant that the public will not hear about the fact.
The problem is not only that he has promoted white male supremacist ideas.
The president’s view on women and minorities is not limited to the sciences.
He also has advocated for the removal of women from the executive branch, for removing the word “woman” from the U.S. Constitution, and for the termination of the Equal Pay Act, which mandates that women be paid the same as men for equal work.
These views are not just offensive, they are harmful to the country.
There are many people who think that the U:S.
is headed in the right direction.
But in the process of moving toward a world where women are no longer underrepresented in the workforce and in positions of power, we are not moving in the direction that the country needs to move toward.
We are heading toward a culture in which white men will rule and women will be treated as second-class citizens.
For the next three years, we will have to keep working to get there, to keep fighting for equal pay and equal rights, to fight for the end of racism, to build on the momentum that has already been built, and to make sure that women and people of color can be the future leaders of this country.
