OC Register: 113 sexual harassment cases reported in the University of California system in 3 years

March 26, 2017 | by

Executive Director Noreen Farrell spoke with the OC Register about the public records release of sexual misconduct cases in the University of California system over the past 3 years. 

Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates, a non-profit that advocates for girls and women, said the number was “extremely high and unacceptable.”

“If you were a parent sending your child to one of the campuses, would this information matter to you in entrusting your child to this campus?” Farrell asked. 

“The power dynamic is profound,” said Equal Rights Advocates’ Farrell. “In some ways, it is not just extremely harmful in the moment, but it can have consequences on someone’s life.”
