Remember that Boise State Professor that went viral for his anti-feminist speech?

 

What Professor Scott Yenor said that shook the nation:

His words that “efforts should not be made to recruit women to fields like engineering, but rather “recruit and demand more of men who become engineers. Ditto for med school, and the law and every trade” as a professor sent shockwaves through the Boise community. And the nation.

He also tweeted this:  

Soon after, Ally Orr (a student at Boise State University) started a GoFundMe page to raise money for a scholarship to be awarded to women in STEM, Med, and Law at Boise State. 

 

The original goal for this scholarship was $10,000. It now sits at over $70,000. The overwhelming support from the Boise community for women in education has been astounding.
