Two low pressure systems will bring rainy weather to the Boston area for the rest of the week. The first system has moved northeast from the central parts of the U.S. over the past few days, and should bring intermittent rain from Thursday night through Friday night. This low pressure system will cause strong southwesterly winds over the same time period. High temperatures will be in the mid- to high-60s during both Thursday and Friday, and Thursday night’s low temperature will likely be around 55°F. This is well above the climatological mean high (50°F) and low (36°F) temperatures of this time of year.
Over the course of 2010-2011, while I was a graduate student at MIT, I struggled to find help with harassment. I encountered both bureaucratic ineptitude and a culture of denial and silence that made the situation needlessly difficult for me, my advisor, and others in my lab. I am writing because I hope that by sharing my experience and insights into how MIT’s system can fail, I can help those working to improve it. While I understand that there have been some changes on campus since I graduated three years ago, I think MIT still needs to improve the way it handles harassment on campus.
