She is not there because of what she knows. She is there because of who she is.

I graduated from UW-La Crosse about 20 years ago. While the department was certainly left of center as a whole, the profs in the science part of geography never brought up politics. Only the cultural geo. profs brought stuff up like that in class. Several of the profs (now retired) used to discuss college politics with several of us students including myself.
One prof related how the school tried to force them to accept a female in one of the positions. They were forced to interview only females for one open position. None of the females interviewed were qualified, and none were hired at that time. But the prof I talked to was mighty upset about the whole charade. It appears the university is now meeting their goal of placing unqualified people in certain positions.
