I have a message for men in medicine, academia and science (a thread) after reading 3 articles about sexual misconduct at conferences and in offices - all must reads:
Here is the message: The young women you encounter at these conferences are not there for your entertainment. They are not provided as an escort service. They are not objects. #HeForShe
It turns out (shockingly) that they are there for the same reasons you are: to learn, to teach, to present their research. They are equally, if not more, qualified than you. They have overcome barriers just to get there. #HeForShe
So here is what you should do (it's really not that hard):
1. Listen to them.
2. Respect their opinion.
3. Give them opportunities to present as part of panels.
4. Don't make sexual innuendos, references, etc.
5. Keep your hands to your self.
It really isn't that hard. You can do it. If you can't work with women in science, then I suggest you get out. We don't need you. We'll take them.
