Sexual Harassment of Women: 
Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
 
This new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is the result of a study that began in 2016. It offers the most comprehensive examination to date of sexual harassment in these academic settings and its effects on women's well-being, their careers, and the scientific enterprise. The report recommends steps colleges and universities, federal agencies and Congress, and other parties should take to prevent and respond to sexual harassment in these fields.
 
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 12, 2018 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
