A REMINDER: SEXUAL MISCONDUCT IN ACADEMIA IS NOT “UNUSUAL”

I have been quietly documenting sexual harassment cases in academia for over two years. In that time, I have created a database containing over 650 confirmed cases, plus over 80 cases undergoing investigation, in courts, or with hidden outcomes. Sexual misconduct in academia is the norm, not the other way around.

Want to learn about the impacts of sexual misconduct on the victims? A growing database of personal stories is now online – my own story to be added soon.

Which is all to say: stop arguing over whether or not this is a problem. Instead, look for solutions!
