Sexual harassment isn't just about sex: Groundbreaking report details persistent hostility female scientists face
Ask someone for an example of sexual harassment and they might cite a professor’s insistent requests to a grad student for sex. But such lurid incidents account for only a small portion of a serious and widespread harassment problem in science, according to a report released recently by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Two years in the making, the report describes pervasive and damaging “gender harassment” — behaviors that belittle women and make them feel they don’t belong, including sexist comments and demeaning jokes.
