'Women In Math' Panel Has Only Male Speakers

A student run math club at Brigham Young University recently created a 'Women In Math' panel, featuring four male math professors, and no women. 

In a now deleted tweet, a student posted an image of the flyer accompanied by "...is this satire?"

The BYU math department wrote on Facebook that they flyer was a "gross oversight" and not satire. 

The club adviser Martha Kilpatrick told Fox 13 Salt Lake City that the poster was "an honest mistake kind of poster. It wasn’t meant to be a political statement. It wasn’t meant to be anything other than encourage female students to come to an activity.”
