Darwin and Larry Summers

A sensible feminist from the Guardian on the Larry Summers affair (the Harvard president whose remarks on sex differences had feminists reaching for their smelling salts)
"It is scandalous that educated women should be so profoundly ignorant of scientific and statistical thinking; even more scandalous that, rather than learn, they slam the door and sneak to the media; and more scandalous still that they do this in the name of feminism. It is not sex differences but sexism that is iniquitous. And it is not science but injustice that should be opposed. For how can we forge a fairer world if we lack a proper understanding of how the sexes differ? "
