In Response to Kipnis's irresponsible book on campus sexual assault
We stand in solidarity with the Northwestern University graduate students who have posted this response to Kipnis's account, part of which is excerpted here:
"Kipnis has demonstrated a willingness to engage in questionable research methods, the unauthorized exposure of private information and reckless, unfounded speculation about a junior member of the academy. We condemn these practices. It is respectable to critique a system that you think is broken or a cultural attitude you think is harmful, but it is not respectable to do so by mischaracterizing events and individuals to the public without gathering your evidence in a responsible manner. We feel that Kipnis has unfairly portrayed our colleague, as well as a number of other people in her book. We stand by our colleague and we offer her our full support."
