Default Re: Sex and the Eurozone (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

So very pleased about this bit on gender. The experience Megan describes - I've had it countless times, and I too am the kind of woman you'd expect to be pushier than average. I would point out that both men and women are inclined to regard the woman who does plow ahead as overly aggressive - it's not just a male response, but a societal one.

And as a woman under 30 in economics journalism, I can report that we are still few in number, but growing - my master's program in business and economics journalism at Columbia was 40% female.
