Why did you take part in the initiative Sexism in Danish Higher Education and Research…
This website and the handbook presented here are in honor of each and every person who shared their personal stories of sexism through the initiative ‘Sexism in Danish Academia’. And it is in solidarity to all of those who have suffered, but have not dared to speak up.
With this, the initiative fulfills the promise to give voice to the many who have experienced sexism in Danish academia, so that they no longer need to feel alone, unheard, disrespected and silenced.
The handbook is a revolutionary exposition of many and multifarious experiences, a transformation from ‘I have suffered’ to ‘we have suffered’. The awakening of the us is in itself a political action towards change, so that we may not ever forget or hide away the suffering caused by gendered and sexual harassment – every day, still, this day today.
