Our thanks to Stu and Jonathan for bringing this to our attention.
Addressing a crowd (of, reportedly, mainly women) at an event on physics and gender, Alessandro Strumia said that “physics was invented and built by men, it’s not by invitation” and described how men are discriminated against in the field, to privilege women. He also suggested that the reason for low levels of representation of women in physics may be biological.
Cern announced his suspension pending an investigation with immediate notice on the 1st of October.
