Quotation of the Day for September 4, 2011

"I'm thumbing my nose at my doctorate title, although I'm very proud of it. It's very paradoxical. It is me saying, 'Yeah, this is me. I'm from a working-class background.' Academia can be very elitist."

- Lianne McTavish, professor at the University of Alberta, who used a sabbatical year to take up bodybuilding. McTavish wrote about the experience on her blog, Look Hot While You Fight the Patriarchy on her website
