On October 15, a protest transpired within the Ateneo de Manila University campus to call out the lack of transparency and just action against selected professors facing sexual harassment allegations. A day prior to the protest, students have been on Twitter to share recent experiences of sexual misconduct similar to the ones previously conveyed by older batches.
There is still plenty of ground to cover to resolve the issue, but students together with the rest of the Ateneo community are set on fighting for appropriate action to guarantee their safety on campus and rallying for judicious process in handling serious cases like this. We talked to two students who participated in the October 15 protest inside the ADMU campus to share their experiences and thoughts about the issue. Names have been withheld for anonymity.
