Thank you, Vice President Biden, for speaking out. I post this for every student who has reached out to me about what happened to them on the Harvard Campus, and in an appeal to my former colleagues at Harvard to finally stand up and speak out about the professorial sexual misconduct they have silently witnessed over the years.  We are responsible for adding that missing piece to the nationwide conversation about Title IX. We owe it to our administrative staff, our students and our untenured colleagues — the most structurally vulnerable vis-a-vis senior faculty — to step up and end the complicity that allows this abuse of power to continue.  And if you are still searching for the words and for the courage, watch The Hunting Ground, watch Spotlight ….it is time to do something, to say something. It’s on us.
