Recent news stories about sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, and similar violations in academia are NOT A FLUKE (Suggested Twitter hashtag: #SHAcademia).
I thought it might help to compile publicized sexual harassment and related stories in academia – there’s a whole bunch of other stories in industry, technology, media, and beyond.

Recent reports are easier to find, but notice how these stretch back in 1981.
And these are just the cases we heard about through the media.
Note that it isn’t only men who are harassers or women being harassed, although the majority of the cases below are of men engaging in a variety of violations of institutional policy relative to women.
I also didn’t include coaches working at universities – that’s a whole other can of worms.
