De wetenschap achter het vrouwelijk orgasme

Jarenlang werd het vrouwelijk orgasme voor onbelangrijk versleten. Het lichaam van de vrouw zou gemaakt zijn om kinderen te baren en een orgasme leek daarbij geen rol te spelen. Inmiddels is menigeen een andere mening toegedaan.

Manufacturing reality in times of crisis
I don’t believe in facts

Embellished by social media, COVID-19 has triggered a veritable conspiracy boom, further eroding scientific and journalistic standards of objectivity and truth. Faced with crisis and the unknown, we look for answers beyond traditional media; and there are many charlatans ready to offer their services of providing easily digestible explanations.

Political Commitments and Practices on the Ground
Gender Inequality in Academia

Gender equality, equal treatment, equal opportunity and non-discrimination are all, formally and in abstract, undisputed objectives. One could say that they are politically so self-evident that no one would openly (dare to) dispute them – at least not in this general and abstract form. However, the reality on the ground is in stark contrast with these proclaimed objectives and commitments.
