Censoring the truth about women in math

The Association for Women in Mathematics is trying to blackball Camilla Benbow because she ran a program for students who scored in the top 0.01%, and most of those qualifying were boys.

Another weird complaint is that others have cited her earlier work, without mentioning later work.

This appears to be just an attempt to punish those who don't kowtow to certain politically correct theories, and to intimidate others into favoring affirmative action.
