Rurality and Women, in the same commentary, but not necessarily in relation to one another

This op ed piece by Verlyn Klinkenborg, who lives in upstate New York and formerly wrote a blog in the NYT called "The Rural Life," makes an interesting point about colleges in rural towns: it's difficult to get the profs. to live there these days. The bulk of the piece, however, is about another really important topic: women, confidence, voice. Everyone should read it for what it says about both, though not necessarily in relation to one another.

Interesting phenomenon. I wonder if this is a trend among newer, younger professors. I also wonder what kind of impact the tendency for professors to live further from college campuses has on professor/student interaction.
