O Iran, o bejewelled land

After reading about gender-bias and conversation dominance in the classroom, I asked for a peer to observe a physics class I was teaching and keep track of the discussion time I was giving to various students along with their race and gender. In this exercise, I knew I was being observed and I was trying to be extra careful to equally represent all students―but I STILL gave a disproportionate amount of discussion time to the white male students in my classroom (controlling for the overall distribution of genders and races in the class). I was shocked. It felt like I was giving a disproportionate amount of time to my white female and non-white students.

Even when I was explicitly trying, I still failed to have the discussion participants fairly represent the population of the students in my classroom.

This is a well-studied phenomena and it’s called listener bias. We are socialized to think women talk more than they actually do. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are ‘hogging the floor’ even when men are dominating.

Stop interrupting me: gender, conversation dominance and listener bias, by Jessica Kirkpatrick from Women In Astronomy

Implicit bias is a thing, just like privilege. Calling it out isn’t meant to shame anyone, but to alert us to step it up and improve ourselves so everyone can have a voice. Be conscious of what you and others are saying, and know when not to speak.

There are 3 men in my masters program class of 20 people. Even when we’re discussing things like sexism, the men completely dominate the conversation. I’ve started pointing it out to them, but it’s just so fucked up.

I get SO MUCH of this in my Masters program. There are women who talk and demand to be hear - usually the mature students and the girl who is on her second MA. And me, because my urge to blurt our whatever I’m thinking is stronger than my fear of displeasing others. But there are two girls, girls who did their BA in the same university, who by all rights should feel that they belong - and they don’t speak up. Ever. It is very sad and a little scary.
