#TakeBackScience: A call for scientific societies to prioritize the safety of their members
One of my first experiences with inappropriate behavior at a conference was when I was 22, fresh out of undergrad and about to start a PhD program.
I wrote an article about why we started #TakeBackScience. This is about more than one predator and one society. This is a trend, this is the norm. It’s time to break the cycle.
On Wednesdays we wear black to ask scientific societies to ban sexual predators from their meetings and revoke their awards. We have been patient, we refuse to be silent. #TakeBackScience #MeTooSTEM #ScienceToo
