Tackling sexual misconduct in universities isn’t optional – it’s essential | Michael...

Last year, members of my senior management team were asked to publicly describe our most recent consensual sexual experience. All around the room, jaws dropped, eyes darted to the floor and we shifted uncomfortably in our seats. The hypothetical question was posed during a Rape Crisis South London workshop and was deeply humbling. While we,…

Harassment fears as students post extreme pornography in online lectures

Students are posting extreme pornography in online lectures, prompting academics to warn that the switch to digital learning in the coronavirus pandemic will increase harassment at UK universities. Several universities have taken disciplinary action against students for posting abusive images in lectures hosted on the Zoom video app in the past week, according to Aisha…

Universities traumatise trainee trainee sexual misbehavior survivors by mishandling cases|Anna Bull...

Sexual harassment complaints processes in universities are a feminist issue. Our research has shown that these processes systematically place (mainly female) survivors of sexual misconduct at a disadvantage compared to those (mainly men) accused of sexual misconduct. Why? Because in staff-student sexual misconduct complaints, students are silenced. They have no right to see evidence submitted…

I discovered direct how British universities are silencing abuse survivors|Danielle Bradford

More than half of students say they have experienced sexual harassment or assault, but only 8% have reported it, a study shows. Many of those who do submit a formal report spend weeks, maybe months, retelling the story of what might be one of the most difficult events of their lives. Imagine, then, what it…

Universities stop working sexual violence survivors. Will brand-new guidelines alter the...

Universities have been warned by the higher education watchdog for England that they could lose their status and public funding if they fail to improve how they tackle harassment and sexual misconduct.

I was bugged at Cambridge: the Dr Peter Hutchinson case belongs...

It’s a Saturday morning and I’m still in bed. My partner is downstairs, reading. We are house-sitting for some friends in a small village outside of Cambridge; it’s a nice break, given the hectic last few months of our lives. I roll over, check my phone, open Twitter. Oh no, I think: again? It had…

Cambridge isn’t the only university to stop working at managing sexual...

Last weekend saw calls for a reform of the University of Cambridge’s collegiate system after one college, Trinity Hall, readmitted an (emeritus) fellow accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment, only two years after stating that he “will not be present in college at any time in the future”. It must have felt like a…

Cambridge academics are calling for the reform of the university’s collegiate system after a don accused of sexually harassing 10 students was readmitted to his college less than two years after being permanently excluded.

Really evaluation– 2 sides of the story about a date failed

In Photograph 51, Anna Ziegler attacked the marginalisation of Rosalind Franklin’s contribution to uncovering the structure of DNA. Her new play is a more equivocal affair about the difficulty of determining what happens between people in bed. But while I admire Ziegler’s intellectual open-mindedness, her writing undeniably favours one of her two characters. Tom and…
