UPDATE: The writer of the story wrote us again to clarify a bit about the story we published a few days ago about a woman whose young daughter was molested at AUB and was met with unhelpful security who blamed her for the incident: “I wanted to point out that after 30 minutes a security guard did come and ask for a description but it was far too late for anything to come of it.”
We’ve received a number of different stories and heard plenty others of incidents of sexual harassment at the American University of Beirut. As a result, we’re interested in getting together a group of volunteers, especially of AUB students or those who have had negative experiences on campus, to work on a campaign to pressure AUB for a better policy to deal with sexual harassment. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Also, we’d like to get some more information specifically about this story, so if the anonymous author could please email we would very much appreciate it!
