Sexism in Danish Higher Education and Research

Moved to action by the renewed attention to the prevailing problem of sexism, Mie Plotnikof and Sara Louise Muhr conceived the initiative ’Sexism in Danish Higher Education and Research’ at the end of September. Within a couple of days, a total of 16 people rallied to issue an open invitation to sign a petition concerning personal experience with or witnessing of sexism in the Danish higher education and research sector.

The group of initiators represent several Danish universities, research institutions and university colleges as well as a wide range of disciplines and nationalities but have engaged in this initiative from a private and personal standpoint.
