Then how would you handle hostile environments for such minorities in the fields?
I just heard about something similar in a far less controversial situation: a woman who likes birdwatching who started a group for female birdwatchers to enjoy doing it together. She was sick of the male birdwatching culture that can be very belittling to others, certainly women, and it's things like that that keep women from then joining such activities, making the male domination & problem even worse.
It's just a vicious circle, a majority starts with a behaviour that drives away the minority, and the inequality rises.
If you see a better way to handle such issues, i'm curious :). For now i'm thinking "well done for making your own bird watching club for women so interested women won't be immediately chased away by the men".
