Found here, "What Harassers Take From All of Us" for when they finally give it a static link. Well worth the read but probably as context afterwards.

    Examples matter. Exposure matters. And exposure to Heidi Bond’s work mattered enough to me that I still remember it now, over a decade later.

    But I also remember that shortly after law school, Heidi Bond disappeared from public life. Letters of Marque was deleted. She never became a law professor, even after finishing her subsequent clerkships with Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy. I occasionally wondered idly where she had gone, but never really looked for her — the closest I came was occasionally googling her old guest posts to reassure myself I hadn’t invented her entirely.

The picture alone makes me uneasy.

Rebecca Traister made a similar point that stuck with me:

    There is a study that was just done recently by a researcher who found that 50 percent of women who experience harassment leave their jobs within two years of experiencing that harassment. When the harassment is particularly grave, that's 80 percent, and many of them leave their professions altogether.

    We can't imagine what the world would've looked like if this systemic behavior hadn't been in place. We don't have the buildings that were built by women or the food that was cooked by women or the comedy that was written and performed by women or the art that would've been made by women or the books that would've been written by women or the political narrative that would've been told by women or the candidates and politicians and political leadership that should've been female.
