I've just finished reading an article from the Columbia Journalism Review on the rampant sexual harassment women experience in the field of photojournalism.  Read it here.

It's not the first such report I've read, but it's probably the most disturbing.  I suggest everyone, men and women, read the article.  This behavior has obviously been going on for decades, and I'm glad it's finally coming to light.  It's men who must step up and speak out loudly, condemning this harassment.  More important, we must speak up on the spot when we witness it.  It's cruel and intimidating behavior, and has certainly pushed many women away from the profession over the years.

Kudos to the women in the article who have the courage to speak up.  And shame on any man who participates in, condones, or ignores sexual harassment in the photo industry.
