Hostility to Trailing Spouses

Here’s an interesting post from ‘Absinthe’ (whose tagline reads "1000 years of affirmative action for white males is enough"). It’s about her struggles (and the struggles of another female physicist/trailing spouse) to find a home in the lone physics department in a small college town. Apparently, not everyone is hip to the sweet two-for-one deals that a two-career couple can offer.

(FYI: ‘Absinthe "is aimed at female academics who are considering pursuing a discrimination lawsuit.")
