From the NYT:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology acknowledged 12 years ago that it had discriminated against female professors in "subtle but pervasive" ways, it became a national model for addressing gender inequity. Now, an evaluation of those efforts shows substantial progress - and unintended consequences. Among other concerns, many female professors say that M.I.T.`s aggressive push to hire more women has created the sense that they are given an unfair advantage.
What`s so "unintended" about that consequence? Or are they just complaining that others have noticed that consequence?
