NOTE: I wrote this text when I was a student and student representative at University of Innsbruck. Now, a deacde later(!) I discovered it, found that it is more topical than ever and decided to publish it here. However, I made some minor edits to the original text (which is probably from around 2009 or so). Don't get confused: I lived in Austria back then and in Germany today. But some things never change: I could still anytime rant about female quota systems!

Alessandro Strumia, professor of theoretical physics at the University of Pisa, gave a lecture at a seminar on high-energy physics and gender at CERN, Geneva. Shortly thereafter it was announced that Mr. Strumia was suspended from all his functions at CERN. What did Mr. Strumia show and say on his 26 slides?
