Stop the discrimination against men in science! Kidding aside, if you are a talented woman in science, you will have a better chance of getting a permanent position than your equally talented male colleague. Maybe this will result in better departments overall both in culture and productivity, maybe it is appropriate as a cure of past bias, or maybe it sucks. Remember though, the path is not easy for anyone: it’s a long hard slog with few prestigious positions available. Talent, timing, and luck all play a role (and not equal ones). No matter who you are, don’t get sucked into a victim mentality. See here and the journal article.
