This is a powerful piece. It makes me think back on the times a colleague at Harvard told me that the way to make it at Harvard is by being “a dutiful daughter.” This sums up the academic culture at the institution, and the toll it takes on female and minority faculty. Thank god for my supportive anthropology colleagues for buffering me, to the extent that they could, at Harvard.
