2. Make a pot of coffee now, there's a good girl.

Doesn't surprise me. I doubt "scientists" are more enlightened than anyone else, and my own subjective sample pool would seem to indicate the opposite. The Boy's Club does not like to be invaded by women, the White Boy's Club particularly hates being invaded by non-white women, and women have always had to prove a higher level of competency in roles that actually require some kind of technical ability. (This requirement obviously does not extend to all fields of endeavor, or we wouldn't be saddled with Sarah Palin)

I think it would also be instructive to determine how greater chance a female, or non-white woman, has of being thrown to the wolves when a mistake has been made, than her (white) male counterpart. Instinctively, I think there would be a greater tendency for the Boys to protect their own than a female colleague.
