"But more importantly, uplift other women in your field."
Fincher and her clique of "feminists" sure set a fine example of that. Not the first time Fincher tries to "taint" a fellow researcher, she also accused PhD researcher Sandy To of plagiarism. Exemplary feminism indeed.

Hi @cashiers! As stated, international credit card usage "applies to all Luxe, Premier and Express rides." DiDi Taxi is a separate service which does not accept international credit cards.

I'm not trying to be a jerk but your information about credit cards and Didi seems to contradict itself within a matter of paragraphs. In one sentence you say:
DiDi users can pay for rides with major international credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, JCB, Discover and Diners.
And later you say:
Note that DiDi Taxi does not support international credit cards and Apple Pay yet, but riders can either use WeChat, Alipay or cash to pay their driver.
So..... which is it? I mean, I know the answer (which is they don't) but I would recommend a copy edit to this section for some clarification.
