ASM vigorously endorses the "Combating Sexual Harassment in Science Act of 2019."

The American Society of Mammalogists (ASM) vigorously endorses the ‘Combating Sexual Harassment in Science Act of 2019.’ Sexual harassment is antithetical to the very nature of scientific endeavor, and it unfairly and irresponsibly impacts the personal and professional development of many aspiring and outstanding scientists. The ASM promotes equal opportunity and equal respect for all persons, and we welcome further investigation into the factors that underlie and allow for harassment in the sciences.
