Rebecca Goldstein on mattering, the gender issue and everything


The videos are flooding in now!

Rebecca Goldstein’s amazing talk at Women in Secularism 2 is one.

It starts with a bang.

I probably agonized over this talk more than any other talk in my entire career.

The source of my agony is this: do I, for the first time in my life, publicly address the gender issue. My MO has always been to try to behave as if my being a female doesn’t matter insofar as my professional life is concerned.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do that? The trouble is, other people don’t try to behave as if our being female doesn’t matter as far as our work is concerned.
