The main story dominating Irish science news this week was of the harassment that Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin’s by a senior academic in UCD.

We decided to look at the experience of women in the Irish science & academic world and ask how prevalent is harassment in our universities and what can be done to eradicate it.

Jonathan spoke to Dr Emma Chapman, Physicist at Imperial College London and Director of the 1752 Group and Dr Jessamyn Fairfield of NUI Galway and member of Soapbox Science.
