  • While it would be interesting to see men's responses to the question about appearance, I think that the range of responses from women show that the question is still relevant to many of them. As a former faculty adviser to a SWE chapter, when there were few women as engineering professors, I can tell you that perception has changed drastically and will continue to change until the question is not necessary.

  • Great article about this infographic by David K. Williams of Fishbowl on Forbes:

  • Regarding: Would you say your career has been a success so far.
    The countries that have emerged on top may actually be due to cultural reasons of lower expectation or 'expressing only positively and not admitting failures' rather than actual success stories of women.

  • A colleague got me thinking about this question, and I have to ask, why did you include a question about appearance? You'd never have posed a question like that in a study on men's careers (with cute graphics to accompany it). It seems rather reductive in this day and age. I realize women ARE still judged in our appearance in ways men are not, but it's depressing to see it brought out in questions in an otherwise sensible survey.
