Help the Cultural Evolution Society correct its gender imbalance!
Last Year, David Sloan Wilson and others launched a Society for the Study of Cultural Evolution which many of us have joined.[READMORE] We have just received from Joe Brower, the Project Coordinator, an request for help, which, at the International Cognition and Culture Institute, we definitely support: "This is where it always begins: Societies comprised mostly of men have a really hard time achieving gender balance later on. We have this one chance to start with a different equation that strongly represents women. Have you ever heard of a scientific society doing this before? Well, let us be the first and others can copy us in the future. That's what I call cultural evolution in action! Please forward this email to women (and young people, those in under-represented parts of the world, related fields that might not know about us, …) and encourage them to sign up."
