Article: Women in Astronomy – My successful experience with sexual harassment

A regular reader of the Women in Astronomy Blog has written an anonymous guest post about her experience with sexual harassment.

What worked for her, might not work for everyone.  If you are being sexually harassed, please contact the sexual harassment officer at your institution for guidance on your particular situation.

“In light of some recent blog posts about sexual harassment at conferences and objectifying of women in a professional setting, I wanted to share my ‘successful’ experience with sexual harassment.  Now perhaps successful it not the proper word to use here, but the [post] is a description of an experience where I was being sexually harassed, I did something about it, it all turned out ok, and I learned quite a bit from the process.”
