Sexual harassment isnít just about sex: Groundbreaking report details persistent hostility female scientists face

Quote:
Ask someone for an example of sexual harassment and they might cite a professorís 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 this week by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Two years in the making, the report describes pervasive and damaging ďgender harassmentĒóbehaviors that belittle women and make them feel they donít belong, including sexist comments and demeaning jokes. Between 17% and 50% of female science and medical students reported this kind of harassment in large surveys conducted by two major university systems across 36 campuses.
