Sexual Harassment and The Library
In light of #MeToo and in light of on-going discussion of sexual harassment, this is the time for talking about what happens in the library when it comes to these issues.

If you're willing to take part in a survey for a potential article on sexual harassment and violence in the library AS a librarian or library employee (from page to administration is fine!), please answer any/all of the questions below.

This is anonymous, and no names will be used in any capacity. Please share your story with as much anonymity as possible -- without identifying names or locations especially -- but do tell it. Get it out. Know it may or may not be shared in an article on Book Riot by Kelly Jensen. Any/all questions or concerns may be directed to her: kelly@riotnewmedia.com.

Survey will close October 23, 2017, midnight. Please feel free to share this.
