Amy Oppenheimer ’80 Interviewed on Sexual Harassment by NPR
Amy Oppenheimer ’80 was interviewed about sexual harassment and workplace policies by Robert Siegel for a segment of the National Public Radio program All Things Considered. Oppenheimer, a Berkeley-based attorney specializing in harassment and discrimination, talked about employer rules and policies that could effectively combat workplace harassment, which she said are continuing at surprisingly high levels.
“You wouldn't expect to see the level of sexual harassment and sexual assault and abuse that is still prevalent,” Oppenheimer said. “And I think that when you're talking about matters of gender issues and sexual issues, they're much harder to get at when you combine it with power, that obviously the law isn't enough, that people really do need to stand up and behave differently and make sure that the people around them are behaving differently.”
