Why so slow? and Women Don't Ask

Upon arrival at WISE FPP's Power, Effectiveness and Gender session with Virginia Valian, participants received a list of suggested topics for discussion, and then she tailored the discussion to our particular concerns.  Handwritten notes, plus her suggestions on all the areas, recommended web sites, readings,  and selected annotations are linked (PDF).

I wasn't able to stay for the whole public lecture on Why so slow? The advancement of women later, but some of my notes are also included (see p.6.  Based the chapter she annotated, I left before she discussed institutional structure. 
Also, the Women in Environmental Careers class met remotely with Sara Lashever (co-author of Women don't Ask with Linda Babcock) earlier in that week. Some highlights from that discussion are at the very end (p.9-10).
