„I always leave my door open when female students are in my office.“
That’s what a professor at a prestigious liberal-arts college told me a few years ago. And since then, I’ve heard similar sentiments from numerous male academics.
The atmosphere on campus is so volatile these days when it comes to relations between the sexes, and young ladies have been known to make unfounded accusations against fellow students as well as employees. So these professors have decided to play it safe.
