  1. Great interview! Such an important issue!
    Still and although me too started several years ago. What we often don’t mention is that sexual harassment happens in every working surroundings- regardless of the academic background. Thanks for this.

  2. Thank you for your comment and the important point you made. Indeed, sexual harassment happens in nearly ever working surroundings! Despite, it is more common in work environments that have stake hierarchies, that are dominated by men and also in work environments where people hold more traditional norms about gender in general.
