My friend Elise Matthesen was creeped upon at a recent convention by someone of some influence in the genre; she decided that she was going to do something about it and reported the person for sexual harassment, both to the convention and to the person's employer. And now she's telling you how she did it and what the process is like.
Reblogging this because, as a SFF fan and the father of a young SFF fan, I want Cons to be safe places for all fans. To that end, I'm also adding a link to a great site offering a way for allies against harassment to identify themselves at Cons. http://backupribbonproject.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/backup-ribbons-to-drop-july-1/ I intend to wear one of these ribbons at any convention I attend going forward.
