Sexual Discrimination in Dutch Academia

Female academics are regularly the victims of sexual discrimination.  Four female professors at Leiden University have launched a website with information and advice about sexual discrimination.  They have published a document which mentions how male academics obtain promotions but female academics in the same circumstances are refused promotions.  Pregnant female academics are being asked whether abortion is an option, or whether they haven’t heard of contraceptive measures.
