Saturday Link Love: Crypto Currencies, Women in Science, and Anita Hill

Saturday Link Love: Crypto Currencies, Women in Science, and Anita Hill December 15, 2018

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!

Spirit Of Fear, on Fort Worth Telegram—“For decades, women and children have faced sexual abuse while worshiping at independent fundamental Baptist churches around the country. The network of churches and schools has often covered up the crimes and helped relocate the offenders.”

Four Days Trapped at Sea With Crypto’s Nouveau Riche, on Breaker—“Two months ago, an editor from BREAKER called and asked if I wanted to go on a four-day Mediterranean cruise with hundreds of crypto-crazed investors and evangelists. We’ll cover the travel, he said. Write something long about whatever you find, he said.”

Women have been written out of science history – time to put them back, on The Conversation—“The 19th-century astronomer, Caroline Herschel, languishes in the shadow of her brother William. Physicist Lise Meitner missed out on the 1944 Nobel Prize for the discovery of nuclear fission, which went to her junior collaborator, Otto Hahn, instead.”

‘Clearly the Tide Has Not Turned’: A Q&A With Anita Hill, on NYT—“The woman who faced down the all-male Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 does not see transformative change on sexual harassment emerging from any branch of government in Washington for the time being.”
