AND NOW: An important aside from @JaquelynGill
I just got yet another invitation to a webinar on responding to harassment. When are we going to start offering workshops for harassers?
Where are the workshops teaching them what harassment is, how to avoid it, and what to do if they experience inappropriate feelings?
Where are the workshops for chairs, administrators, deans, and Title IX coordinators on reporter-centered handling of harassment cases?
Where are the workshops on creating a lab, departmental, field, and disciplinary culture that discourages harassment?
When are we going to start approaching harassment as something preventable, rather than something to train women to react to?
When are we going to ask men to do their fair share of the emotional heavy lifting involved in dealing with harassment culture?
When are we going to start talking about harassment as something that happens to more than just white, heterosexual, cis-gender women?
Is there even one anti-harassment workshop led for men, by men? Why not? You want to be an ally? Start there.
Harassment. Will. Not. Stop. If. You. Only. Talk. To. Women. About. Harassment.
