The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign released a much-anticipated report this week with recommendations to improve the handling of sexual harassment cases involving faculty.

Among the most significant: expanding the definition of sexual harassment beyond the campus’ current standard, hiring more advisers and investigators, and asking candidates for university jobs to waive confidentiality and reveal their disciplinary records.

But whether the university’s Board of Trustees will embrace change remains to be seen. Even Robin Kar, a professor of law and philosophy who headed up the committee, was uncertain how the ideas would be received.

Kar acknowledged it could be a challenge to get those at the top of the university system hierarchy to buy into some of the suggested reforms. He noted that years have passed since the board last approved changes to guidelines for staff and faculty.

“It happens very rarely,” he told NPR Illinois.

The hurdles to reducing sexual harassment at the university were on display Wednesday at a summit hosted at the university’s Urbana-Champaign campus. Panelists noted that many people never report incidents to Title IX offices, which are responsible for investigating sexual misconduct complaints.

They also raised concerns about the efficacy of Title IX training, the need to intervene earlier to stop bullying or other problematic behavior, and the handling of gender discrimination issues other than sexual harassment.

“We need to focus less on the policies and more on the conduct,” said Kristina Larsen, an attorney and activist. Larsen said that in university settings, administrators don’t have the same amount of power as they do in the corporate world. Colleagues often have as much power as administrators to intervene, she said.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s illegal or not,” she said. Instead the campus community should ask: “What’s ethical? What’s appropriate?”

A university spokesperson declined to speculate on when the reforms would be adopted or how much they would cost, but said the institution was committed to “building a safer community.”

“It’s too early to determine what final form overall implementation will take and how much that would cost,” the spokesperson wrote in an email to NPR Illinois. “However, the chancellor and provost have made clear that cost will not be an impediment to change.”

Concerted calls for change at UIUC began a year ago at a #MeToo forum at the College of Law. An audience member asked about reports of harassment by law professor Jay Kesan. The university had spent two years investigating Kesan, but it kept the findings confidential.

Local media subsequently reported that the university investigation included three complainants’ allegations against Kesan, and found that more than 30 witnesses had testified to Title IX investigators. Kesan was determined to have violated the university’s code of conduct and the “spirit” of the sexual misconduct policy.

Kesan was forced to forego merit-based pay raises for a limited time, but critics contended the punishment was not serious enough. Student groups called for his resignation. Kesan later admitted to the behavior in a letter to colleagues and apologized. He is currently on a voluntary unpaid leave and is set to return in 2020.

Continued media coverage by The News-Gazette, Illinois Public Media and others has kept the issue of faculty sexual misconduct at UIUC under public scrutiny and added to the number of known cases.

In August, an NPR Illinois and ProPublica investigation detailed allegations against seven professors in recent years. It uncovered three new cases in which professors accused of conduct including stalking, inappropriate touching and unfair treatment of international students were found in violation of university policy and were then given periods of paid leave. Two went on to new positions, and the other is still on faculty at UIUC.

One of the focal points of the summit Wednesday was the need for a new approach to addressing discrimination and harassment within academia as a whole. Panelists said universities need to go beyond the requirements of Title IX and better support victims of sexual misconduct.

Larsen told the crowded conference that victims tell her the process of reporting sexual harassment is more traumatizing than the behavior that led them to report in the first place — “100% without exception.”

Larsen said a fear of lawsuits from the accused and the influence of university lawyers can keep administrators from doing the right thing. Her advice: “Don’t worry about the liability, worry about doing what’s right.”

One of the recommendations from the report was for the university to hire more confidential advisers who can counsel victims without having to report details of the incidents to the Title IX office. Kar said that while putting together the report, he heard from the campus’ director of the Women’s Resources Center, Sarah Colomé, that victims had to wait too long to speak with confidential advisers.

A university spokesperson said the Women’s Resources Center is seeking to hire two full-time confidential advisers. The center currently has employees serving part-time in that role.

Students also demanded more of a say in the development of new policies.

Sudarshana Rao, a senior who is a member of the student government, noted that student leaders had written a letter asking to participate in the negotiations after reading the NPR Illinois-ProPublica investigation.

“I think the next steps going forward are to keep this momentum going and the student voice is so, so important,” Rao said. “We have the most to lose if the administration or higher powers choose to abuse their power.”

We’re well into the 21st century and if you don’t have an electronic sex toy by now, you might want to check if you’re stuck in a time capsule. If we have speakers that do our grocery shopping, and cars that drive themselves, certainly there’s a sex toy that can level up your sex life. Check out what we’re coining our “Hall of Flamers.”

For Her: The SONA 2

LELO SONA 2

We are SO-nuts about the SONA. It’s been our top selling product for a long, long time, and we consider it one of our favorite sex innovations of all time. I mean, it stimulates 75% more of the clitoris so that deserves an award for every orgasm it’s helped achieved. Actually it’s received quite a few awards, like the Global A’Design Award and iF Design Award.It’s basically a clitoral massager that sends sonic waves into your vagina and straight to your heart. Warning: you may fall in love. There are some differences between the SONA 2 and SONA 2 Cruise you may want to check out too.

For Him: The F1s

LELO F1s

The F1s is a pretty cool new sextech innovation, especially for developers. It’s a male masturbation sleeve that can connect to your smartphone through a LELO app, where you can develop your own rhythms and intensities of pleasure. But don’t worry, if you’re not a developer, you can still enjoy immense pleasure from the F1s. Enjoy the fruits of our in-house programmers’ labor (because they’ve been testing it themselves).

For Couples: The TIANI 3

LELO TIANI 3

If you’re looking to introduce a sex toy into the bedroom to increase everybody’s pleasure, this is the the toy for you. The TIANI 3 is a wearable couples massager worn internally and externally by the woman, and can be controlled with a wireless remote. The thinner arm of the device is worn internally to stimulate the G-spot, while the thicker arm lays flat against the clitoris to stimulate the clitoris and penis. If you’re looking to adventure outside of the bedroom too, let her where this while you’re out on the town while you control her pleasure. 

Even For Mom: LUNA Smart Bead

LELO LUNA Smart Bead

Kegel trainers are great for women post-birth who want to rebuild their muscles, or for any woman looking to maximize the strength of her orgasms. The LUNA Smart Bead puts the fear of “Am I doing this right?” to bed, so that you can have more fun in bed. The trainer has a series of vibrations that signal you to squeeze your pelvic floor muscles, and release when it stops. It’s a great tool for women to understand their bodies better.

Cruise Control Technology

What the heck is Cruise Control Technology? It’s something we’ve developed to combat a big sex toy issue: devices losing power the harder you press them to your body. With this tech, the power actually increases for when you need it most. The battery saves 20% of its full power to unleash at your peak pleasure. It’s available in products like the SONA and F1s

Sense Motion Technology

Sense Motion modes allow for you or your partner to create your own vibration patterns with the use of a bluetooth remote. Sense Motion mode #1 allows you to increase and decrease the vibration by simply flipping the remote from horizontal to vertical, while Sense Motion mode #2 pairs the vibrations with any movement of the remote. Available in the Insignia 2 Design collection.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) — After a former Nelson County Sheriff’s deputy publicly alleged she was forced to resign after reporting sexual harassment by a supervisor, a legal expert says the issue is widespread and reluctance to report is common.

“There are a lot of impediments to even reporting in the first place, just based on the stigma that’s around sexual violence at all,” said Linda Seabrook, director of workplace safety and equity for Futures Without Violence, a San Francisco-based nonprofit devoted to ending violence against women and children around the world.

Seabrook says one of the impediments to reporting sexual harassment is fear of retaliation.

“If you’re harassed at work, you also have the other impediment of feeling that you might be fired or otherwise retaliated against for reporting the conduct,” she said.

Fear is what initially prevented a female deputy in the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office from reporting sexual harassment by a supervisor. That deputy spoke to CBS19 on condition of anonymity.

“I expected that there might be some backlash from people that I worked with because they’d known this individual a lot longer than I had,” she said.

But it ended up to be worse than that.

“I was given the option to resign or be fired,” the deputy said.

Seabrook can’t comment on the deputy’s specific case. But she says statistics show the situation is not uncommon.

“Around 75 percent of EEOC sexual harassment charges are also accompanied by a retaliation charge,” she said.

And she says sexual harassment is more common in male-dominated fields like construction and law enforcement.

“There’s a feeling that this is a mans industry, a male dominated industry, and that women coming in to this industry are trying to gain power and are kind of interlopers,” Seabrook said. “So a good way to kind of check that is to engage in harassment and discrimination and ultimately retaliation.”

Seabrook says federal law under Title VII, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, prohibits sexual harassment and retaliation for reporting it, even if the retaliation doesn’t come directly from the individual accused of the harassment.

Issued on: Modified:

A French modelling agent suspected of procuring young women for the disgraced US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been formally accused of sexual harassment, French judicial sources said Thursday.

Advertising

Confirming the complaint against Jean-Luc Brunel, one source told AFP that the Paris prosecutor’s office had received a letter of complaint “involving actions defined as sexual harassment“.

Officers leading the investigation into Epstein’s activities in France will soon question the woman who filed the complaint, the source added.

Brunel, founder of Karin Models and MC2 Model Management, is accused in American court documents of rape and of obtaining young women for Epstein, who was found hanged in his New York jail cell on August 10 while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking.

In court documents, alleged victim Virginia Giuffre said she was forced by Epstein to sleep with several well-known politicians and businessmen, including Brunel.

In France, several former top models have come forward with allegations of rape against Brunel.

But according to a source close to the investigation, those alleged crimes date too far back to be prosecuted.

The sexual harassment complaint, by contrast, concerns an incident that took place after 2015, meaning Brunel could still be charged.

In a statement issued by his lawyer in early October, Brunel denied the “accusations reported by the press”.

He also denied he was on the run from the law, saying he was ready to answer police questions.

Brunel, last spotted at a high-society function in early July, has not been seen in public since.
