Trajectories, pivots

Why It’s Harder For Grad Students To Report Sexual Harassment

So “there’s a whole cascade of dangers that I think graduate students in particular consider when trying to take action here,” she added.

Brown was one of more than 1,000 academics who recently signed an open letter condemning Yale University ethicist Thomas Pogge, who was accused of sexual harassment. She said part of her motivation for signing it was frustration that too many harassers in academia are never punished while their victims may be forced to alter their whole careers."

The complaint continued, “No other chancellor or other senior executive has been forced to do so except Chancellor Katehi.”

"Her shift is also reassuring to many progressives who were concerned that she may moderate in the general election as she tries to win over independent or Republican-leaning voters who may be turned off by Republican Donald Trump. Sanders is technically still in the race and has not yet endorsed Clinton, although he said he will support her."

Before, she sounded a lot like this:

College admissions favor the rich. Let’s turn it around before taxpayer-funded tuition relief becomes another handout for the wealthy
