Workshop Online harassment against academics

The Halkes Women Faculty Network organized a workshop on Online harassment against (women and minority) academics. The workshop took place two times: once online on Monday 13 February at 4 to 5 pm and once on campus on Thursday 16 February at 4 to 5 pm. The workshop was given by senior researcher at Atria, Institute on Gender Equality and Women’s History, Paula Thijs (see below for her research background). She discussed the current situation based on statistical insights, taking an intersectional perspective, while also provided us with tools to protect ourselves from online violence.
