Women of Herpetoculture & Herpetology: Melissa Coakley

Melissa Coakley of Snake Hunting Chick kicks off a new series for us with this interview. Now, before you get to thinking this is a feature similar to articles or talks you may have seen before let me enlighten you now. This is a series that began when a colleague took a comment made by a prominent figure in the community as being misogynistic. Something was said akin to ‘We need to reach out to the soccer moms of the reptile community…’ Whether it was meant as misogynistic or not I am not sure. Regardless, some women in the community took offense. It got me thinking about the tendencies of some males to treat women differently and well you can now hear for yourself the results of these interviews.
