I am never surprised when the results of basically any study on the subject show that the majority of women in disciplines that involve fieldwork have experienced sexual harassment (see, e.g., this article in Science). Fieldwork provides a context for abuses of all kinds. This needs to change and I don’t pretend to know what will be effective at the kind of scale we need, but that’s not what this essay is about. This is, rather, about one contributor to an alarming trend of abuses perpetrated by people who claim to be advocates of the MeToo movement in STEM.
