Women Also Know Stuff: The Continued Bias Against Women in Academia and the Workplace

To women (and other) faculty members:
I’ve copied the links below to two interesting recent articles on the plight of female faculty members in the academy.
The first addresses the relative frequency, or lack thereof, of women speaking at colloquia.
The second, from a daily science update I receive, identifies some pressures female faculty members experience at a greater level than do males; The likely adverse effects of these demands on indicia such as frequency and depth of scholarly “output” are clear.
Do any of you notice these patterns at your institutions?
