    The answer is, in fact, quite well-known (obvious, really) and very simple. Harassers must stop harassing. Employers, scientific societies, and research funders must stop tolerating harassment, and stop rewarding the kind of behavior that permits harassment to continue. Yes, it is a significant cultural change. Thought and open discussion are a nice luxury, but that isn’t going to solve the problem. The answer to this poisonous, noxious issue is to eliminate the poison.
