Silicon Valley's weapon of choice against women: shoddy science

        Bad science routinely slips through the cracks.  Occasionally
        it rips open a gaping chasm. In the 19th and early 20th
        centuries, eugenicists in Europe and the United States
        convinced universities and funding bodies - including the
        Carnegie Institution and the Rockefeller Foundation - that
        there are distinct human races, some of them weaker than
        others. They enjoyed enormous support from those who longed
        for scientific evidence to shore up their dangerous political
        aims.
