WCAI: Scientist Publishes A List Of Known Harassers in Academia

WCAI: Scientist Publishes A List Of Known Harassers in Academia. “Rates of sexual abuse and harassment in academic science are second only to the military. It’s estimated that at least half of women faculty and staff face harassment and abuse and that 20 to 50 percent of women students in science, engineering, and medicine are abused by faculty. Those numbers are generally based on surveys, which are an important way of getting a handle on the problem and how it changes women’s career trajectories. But when it comes to holding institutions accountable and making meaningful changes, naming perpetrators may be even more powerful.”
