Re: Sexual harassment at conferences (comment) (reply)

Thanks, Margaret, for repairing the broken link. I'm glad that I was able to read both of the Guardian articles. I agree with the second article --- about the cultural context of sexual harassment, but the notion of effecting cultural change is certainly daunting!

I would also like to share an article that I found on my daughter's Facebook page: https://www.thecut.com/2017/12/rebecca-traister-this-moment-isnt-just-ab...

In the absence of comments from our subscribers, can I assume that these matters are not an issue any more?

Sexual harassment at conferences (comment) (reply)


E.D. Lloyd-Kimbrel replied to my previous post on sexual harassment at conferences with links to the Guardian article and to a second follow-up comment that also appeared in the Guardian.

Although the post that was submitted to H-Scholar contained complete and accurate links, for some unknown reason the H-Net platform keeps truncating them and they won't work.
