Loosing male privilege

I just came across this short video on the bbc website, and thought it definitely worth flagging up. Part of their 100 Women series, it's by a transgender woman who is also a scientist. She fascinatingly and tellingly talks about the differences in the way people treated her before and after she transitioned: people stopped assuming she knew as much, and trusted her to know technical details less. It's perhaps only through situations like this that we can see the true extent of sexism in our society: we have a person here who has experienced both sides of the divide, and who is able to articulate the differences between them very well.
