Sir Tim Hunt
Professor Sir Tim Hunt had won every honor in his field, from Fellowship of the Royal Society to the Nobel Prize. But last month, the pioneering biochemist was dismissed from his post at University College, London (UCL). Why? Because, speaking at a lunch to celebrate female scientists in Seoul, he had introduced his remarks with a clumsy joke about finding it hard to work with women in the laboratory because he fell in love with them and they cried.
One of the women present, a lecturer called Connie St Louis, complained on Twitter about his “sexism”, triggering the usual lynch mob. By the time the professor had returned to London, his career lay about him in broken shards.

The U.S. women’s national soccer team overwhelmed Japan, 5-2, at Sunday’s World Cup Final and cemented America’s dominance of women’s soccer as the first nation to win the world championship three times.
The game in Vancouver, British Columbia, was settled quickly as the U.S. took a 4-0 lead inside the game’s first 16 minutes, led by a hat trick from star midfielder Carli Lloyd.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
I write separately to call attention to this Court’s threat to American democracy.
The substance of today’s decree [Same-Sex Marriage Ruling] is not of immense personal importance to me. The law can recognize as marriage whatever sexual attachments and living arrangements it wishes, and can accord them favorable civil consequences, from tax treatment to rights of inheritance.
Those civil consequences—and the public approval that conferring the name of marriage evidences—can perhaps have adverse social effects, but no more adverse than the effects of many other controversial laws. So it is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court.
