The second announcement is this: [...]

Google Doodles and invisible women

Earlier this month I came across Shelby Knox’s post on how Google Doodles (you know what those are, right?) manage to almost entirely ignore women. I thought at the time, “oh wow, we have got to pull this together with our EVE stuff.”
