Reading what these courageous women have written about their abuse and how hard they had to fight the ASU administration to take their complaints seriously makes me angry at their administrators and proud of these students' perseverance.
When did tenure become a carte blanche for rape and sexual harassment? In what other setting would these gross abuses of power be tolerated and tacitly approved?
While ASU apparently fired Mark Jacobs, it sounds as though there are many other predatory professors loose on the ASU campus, and indeed, many other campuses around the world.
