Amber Roberts has sparked the Twitter outrage mob with this harrowing personal account of a microagression at an airport. The answer to the man’s question is interesting – “one is for my astrophysics work and one is for my artificial intelligence work” by the way… But do not be fooled into thinking that such a question could be a reasonable one motivated by curiosity, that a person may ask of any man or woman with laptops however – Amber knows that this man was trying to inflict Patriarchal pressure on her to trade in her laptops for some nice knitting needles. This deliberate discrimination must be called out “when we are trying to solve the problem of getting more women involved in tech.”
And definitely ignore this Janice Fiamengo video (26:03).
