In a survey of scientists engaged in field research, the majority — 64 percent — said they had personally experienced sexual harassment while at a field site, and 22 percent reported being the victim of sexual assault.
Most of the people reporting harassment or assault were women, and the vast majority were still students or postdocs.
And for female victims, the perpetrator was more likely to be a superior, not a peer. “This is happening to them when they are trainees, when they are most vulnerable within the academic hierarchy,” says evolutionary biologist Katie Hinde , an author on the study in PLOS ONE. Hinde and her colleagues say this could be a factor in the large number of women who enter scientific fields but don’t continue.

Water Is a Human Right: Call for End to Detroit Water Shutoffs
Despite being surrounded by the largest collection of freshwater lakes in the world, thousands of Detroit residents—most of them low-income people of color—are finding themselves without access to fresh water because of actions by the city’s water department that advocates say are in violation of Detroiters’ human rights.
In March, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD)announced an effortto collect more than $119 million in delinquent payments from more than 150,000 customers in an effort to reduce the department’s $5.7 billion debt load—which it acquired after the city, and then its water and sewage bonds,were downgradedby multiple major credit agencies. As part of that plan, in April and May the department shut off water service at a total of 7,556 locations. In June, the department redoubled those efforts, shutting off service at 7,210 locations in one month alone.
Community advocates have spoken out against these tactics, and have organized to protest policies that they say are denying residents a basic human right to water.
Last time I made a post like this, I got a few scattered messages of support, but it got overwhelmed by reblogs of doubt and hate.
My name is Dana, and I need your help.
I am a nonbinary (androgynous gender fluid), bisexual person. They/them pronouns please.
I have been diagnosed with inattentive ADHD, GAD, depression, PTSD, Bipolar II, IBS, and gastritis.
I currently live under the roof of my emotionally, verbally and in the past, physically abusive parents. My parents know the various things I’ve been clinically diagnosed with and they themselves are neurodivergent too, but they’re very ableist. I’ve been threatened with homelessness, I’m made to pay bills even though (seen above) I have less than $200 to my name.
Pictured above are my balances, my appointment card for my next appointment with my psychiatrist and therapist, and my credit card balance. I’ve been paying the minimum payment for months now, and the interest rates are adding up. That balance is for gas and medications.
I’ll find out this week if I managed to get a good job with a close friend. But the money in my accounts right now is all I have left. I’ve scoured every corner of the house, every purse and wallet, every hiding spot. This is all that’s left.
Every donation, every penny helps me enormously. You can find me on PayPal at Qtbugdrs.
