We have just spotted a delightful blooper in the NZSM [October 1993] which has caused us much amusement.

In the article "Great Women of Science", page 12, you state: "Metge was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1987 for her academic and social contributions to society. Few scientists of either gender achieve that distinction."

Isn't this taking equal opportunity a bit far to expect male scientists to become Dames of the British Empire?
