this makes me so angry. my cousin struggles with this constantly even though he has several graduate degrees and is fluent in spanish and english (and speaks several other languages fairly well), he still gets the weakest reasons for not being hired or considered for an interview once they see his name or hear his accent. he tried this same experiment about 5 or 8 years ago with identical results. this blatant racism has no excuse and these employers should not only be replaced but should feel horrible about their opinions and decisions. 

Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com »

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.
