I actually met this girl a while back in a class, and she has such a beautiful voice and a beautiful personality to match. Everything about this video and song really resonates me with right now, because today was kinda my last “official” day as an undergrad. I have a lot of emotions and thoughts going through my mind, but listening to this really helped. If you need any song to help you get through a little part of your day/night, this really does it.
70% of the people in this room are women. Grad students… maybe 50%. Tenured professors? It drops down to about 20%. Think about the professors you’ve had. How many of them were women? If we had more women in science, maybe we’d spend less time trying to help a 70-year-old man maintain an erection and not be bald and more time trying to develop male birth control. — tyrone HECK YEAH hayes, master of endocrinology and clear-headed sociopolitical thinker.
