A recent article argued that ‘biology and nature sway females away from science.’ Not so fast.
"Discrimination against woman is a widespread problem that requires responses on numerous fronts, but it’s important to identify and acknowledge its pervasiveness. No one should have their work, dreams, and career undermined because they’re the “wrong” gender or race."
i forgot to jump, steady now
how long since i dived
into the shallows, into the depths of my blood
my flesh, my organs
swirling around, playing with it
identifying each cell, questioning it’s energy
i wonder now at my capacity to become anew
am i still new,
can i create a false newness
to begin to explore again
slamming the glass door, till it shatters
i will not be kept out
of the room i deserve to be in
