This was written by a friend's daughter from Cambridge university - no doubt she'll face a bit of a backlash from within the uni for it but I was so proud of her and thought it would bolster her a bit for some more people to read it in the wider public. - you can facebook 'like' to encourage!

Thank you so much for your support mumsnetters - she was very touched by the extra 'likes' and I've showed her your encouraging comments which meant a lot to her as I think this is a subject very close to her heart.
WillieWaggledagger - yes she's certainly hoping to write more and would love to work as a writer so this is a real boost to her confidence - thank you all!

tsk, I 'shared' this on facebook and already one of my friends complaining that this sort of thing is 'pointless' and unnecessary.

grrr that's the whole point the article is making! That this kind of 'gentle' peer pressure to shut up and not make a fuss is exactly why we're still struggling with these subtle forms of sexism!
