    "UC Berkeley Students to File State Sexual Harassment Complaint Against Professor"
    --Sam Levin (10 April 2016)

    It's common for women to experience sexual harassment from men with power.
    In this male-dominated forum, few readers may comprehend how sttressful it can be for these women.

    "Speaking to the 'Guardian', (Kathleen) Gutierrez started crying when
    she said how hard it is for young women in academia, especially minority
    women, to complete their studies without facing discrimination and harassment."
    --Sam Levin

    Another student, Nicole Hemenway, has come forward in support of these two women.

    "'Honey Bear': Berkeley Student Details Alleged Sexual Advances by Professor"
    --San Levin (27 May 2016)

    "I understand so well now what barriers to entry in a male-dominated field
    means and how difficult it is to cross those barriers. The system isn't made for me."
    --Nicole Hemenway

    But no amount of evidence could alter the fanatical belief of many heterosexual
    white American men that they must be the most oppressed group in the USA.
