Abstract

A data visualization project aimed at giving visibility to the issue of sexual harassment in the academy.

As researchers and members of academic community we felt that this issue goes too often under-reported and we decided to give visibility to it using data-visualization as a communicative medium.

The data you are about to see comes from an anonymous online survey aimed at collecting personal experiences. The survey was issued in late 2017 and, through it, more than 2000 testimonies were collected.

This data is highly personal and sensitive. We spent significant effort identifying suitable ways to handle and represent it, to show the large dataset, but also honor the individual experiences.
