As I wrap up my dissertation data analysis I see so much of what young women shared with me all over the news. Most recently I heard this interview by Kara Swisher of of Erica Baker and Sarah Kunst - towards they end, they describe what would be/might be helpful in changing the culture as well as the importance of having people who will speak out and say something when they hear or see something inapropriate.
These are skills that young women in the field would benefit from developing. Young women in HS and college are still developing their own identities and they are learning to identify what's appropriate and what isn't. They might benefit from explicit training. Not only that, but young men also need help when it comes to these topics - they need to be guided and given good examples just as much as young women do.
This is an interview that I will revisit with my students.
