Gender Equity has taken on a new meaning in the recent issue (Feb 13, 2006,  
page 65) of C&EN.  Women are now shown disregarding recognized eye  protection 
practiced and ACS policy (See Safety in Academic Chemistry  Laboratories).
It continues to be disappointing that the editors of C&EN remain  seemingly 
insensitive to showing chemists wearing proper eye protection while  working in 
laboratories.  Now, women have an equal opportunity!
Perhaps our  new ACS President will help our Society and it's major news 
magazine do a  better job on this important issue.  She may better appreciate that 
placing  "blind faith" in the C&EN editors is apparently ineffective.
Regards, ...  Jim
