This blog collects photos from conferences all around the world, highlighting the overrepresentation of (white) men in academia, government, and other industries.

Congrats, you have an all male panel!, run by Finnish feminist Saara Sarma, satirizes the phenomenon by adding a small photo of American actor David Hasselhoff with a thumbs-up to each picture, implying the endorsement of white masculinity (though not any specific endorsement from Hasselhoff himself).

A particularly egregious post (picture reproduced above) showed an all-male panel at 2014’s Global Summit of Women in Paris.

For many, this blog is a visual demonstration of the lack of gender (and racial equality) among the supposed ‘experts’ of the world.
