Earlier this week, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Tim Hunt made shockingly sexist remarks about female scientists at a conference in Seoul.

“Let me tell you about my trouble with girls,” he reportedly said. “You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticise them, they cry!"

Hunt subsequently resigned from his position as a Royal Society Fellow at University College London over the comments, telling the BBC that he “did mean” what he said, but that he was “really sorry”.

Sarah Tuttle, an astrophysicist from Texas, was among those who took to Twitter to express their anger over Hunt’s comments.
