U.S. First Lady Melania Trump praised the "empowerment of women" at a General Electric all-female service center in the Saudi capital on Sunday, saying the women should work together and educate their children well.
When I first became a professor I was 26. And female. (I'm no longer 26; still female.)

I bought some collared shirts from Brooks Brothers; I made a point never to wear jeans when meeting with undergraduates. If I looked more like people's mental image of a professor, I thought, maybe I'd be treated like one, too.
