I know this isn't about science but sometimes.....

So anyone read the CNN update about the opening ceremony of the Olympics, "Olympic girl seen but not heard"? Turns out the adorable nine year old girl who sang, was adorable but not the singer. The "talent" was a seven year old girl who wasn't deemed cute enough to be seen.

Oh wait this may actually be about women in science. It doesn't really matter so much as to how talented you are, what matters is that you be "flawless in image, internal feeling and expression." After all we can always find someone who's incredibly talented and skilled, but not "flawless in image, internal feeling and expression" to sing the song or do the work.
