There is, as you are aware, a growing movement across this country to make our college campuses safer.  Imagine how difficult it is to improve sexual assault policy and work toward gender equity on the Harvard campus with a university president who refuses to engage in any meaningful dialogue?  Walking out on a meeting with sexual assault survivors does not bode well for change.
The emails I receive each week from current and former students detail Harvard’s systematic failure to prevent and respond effectively and compassionately to campus sexual assault and harassment, and the tremendous fear of retaliation that silences students and faculty.
