This surprised us 👉 Training does not reduce sexual harassment. We've been conducting widespread sexual harassment training in the U.S. for 15+ years now, and it has not seemed to reduce sexual harassment. #metooSTEM
Why? 1) Because of cynicism. 2) Because employees "sniff out" compliance-based trainings. 3) Because trainings change attitude but haven't been effective in changing behavior. Conclusion: We need to overhaul our approach to SH training going forward. #metooSTEM

#WomeninSTEM get a lot of “Reply Guys” who repeat the same unhelpful comments.

@shrewshrew and I (a woman & a man in science) have attempted to catalog those replies, to save us all the trouble of writing new responses every time.

presenting THE NINE TYPES OF REPLY GUYS

(1/n)
We will post one Reply Guy a day, and we welcome your thoughts and feedback.

Starting with a very nice fella, full of helpful advice, with one big problem:

Reply Guy #1. THE LIFE COACH
People who get annoying replies can tag the dude with the appropriate Reply Guy from this thread, and save themselves a pointless debate. That’s the idea anyway.

And some guys seem to take it to heart when you point out that they’re being a cliché.

A caveat before I get into the Ronell #MeTooPhD mess: when Butler, Felman, Spivak and Caruth are on one side and Leiter on the other, I do have misgivings. Butler says the letter we have access to is incorrect. I do wonder what I'm missing about this all.

But so are a lot of us.
Regardless of what actually happened, the (available) letter in support of Ronell contains an egregious list of victim-blaming cliches:
"we have all worked for many years in close proximity to Professor Ronell"

So have most colleagues of most faculty. When a grad brings up faculty harassment, it's them--temporary, transient, less trusted--vs a long-term community member. It's part of the challenge of #MeTooPhD.

Thanks @grollman for calling out the hypocrisy of sociologists who turn a blind eye to sexual misconduct in our institutions. UW-Madison can learn a lot from #MeTooPhD. Unfortunately that change is coming slower than I would like. egrollman.com/2018/08/03/met…
I spent more hours than I would like explaining to male faculty members why the “whisper network” exists, and how it’s more than just “rumors.” Many sociologists, including some of our faculty, study informal institutions that emerge when trust in formal institutions breaks down.
When you have a department that has victim-blamed, protected abusers, and turned a blind eye to the pain and trauma of members for DECADES, who thinks that the benefits of reporting outweigh the costs? But staying silent isn’t an option either if it means others could be hurt.

1/ Content warning: sexual harassment and assault. The @theNASEM released a report on sexual harassment in medicine. Disturbing quotes by #womeinmedicine from the report are in this thread (17). #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #heforshe @womeninmedchat @physcianwomen bit.ly/2JzUunm
2/ Residency. "But, the thing is about residency training is everyone is having human rights violations. So, it’s just like tolerable sexual harassment." (Nontenure-track faculty) #believewomen #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #womeinmedicine #metoophd #metoomed #MedEd #sheforshe #heforshe
3/ Culture. "I still don’t think that the prospect of being sexually assaulted was as bad as watching the next generation of sexual harassers being formed. I think that was the worst part for me." (Nontenure-track faculty) #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #womeinmedicine #MedEd #heforshe
