"Physics was built by men': Cern suspends scientist over remarks."
It is true I suppose, but only because men ruled the world back then. Women were considered property and were rarely educated to the extent men were. They were expected to stay home and raise children for the most part.
That doesn't mean it was fair, but that is the way it was.
"Bizarre video of Nobel physics laureate Gérard Mourou surfaces
Mourou and a colleague shown dancing in a lab surrounded by female students,
some of whom do a striptease"
"Mourou and a colleague, Jean-Paul Chambaret, are seen dancing in the laser lab,
apparently surrounded by a troupe of female students. Two of the women fling off
their semi-transparent lab coats to reveal white underwear underneath, in an
unexpected striptease. The men, wearing reflective laser googles, strike macho poses."
"Jess Wade, a physicist at Imperial College London, said the four-minute clip
managed to capture a lot of what is wrong with research, including hero-worship
of professors, bizarre power relationships and sexism."
