Sexism in science PLOS

A study by Clancy et al (2014) in PLOS surveyed 666 fieldwork students and found that 26% had been sexually assaulted. They reported that: “Women trainees were the primary targets; their perpetrators were predominantly senior to them professionally within the research team.” Also: “Few respondents were aware of mechanisms to report incidents; most who did report were unsatisfied with the outcome.” (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0102172#pone.0102172-McGuire1).
