Law Professor Janet Halley On Why Harvard’s Sexual Harassment Policy Must Change

Posted in Policy & Legislation

Thefire.org 11/19/2014

"... Harvard Law School Professor Janet Halley has been a strong advocate for due process rights for college and university students accused of sexual assault. Harvard’s sexual harassment policy goes too far in several ways. As Halley points out, its definition of “harassment” is broad enough to encompass a wide range of protected speech. Such a broad definition, Halley argues, will shut down exactly the kind of conversations that are necessary in order to educate students about, and help prevent, sexual assault. ..."

His accuser should have brought charges against him or sued him years ago. Now she needs to move on. Instead, she’s seeking publicity and pushing for legislation that would make sure that statutes against rape allegations never expire. ..."
