The #METOO movement has shone a light on sexual harassment in the arts and entertainment industries, now female scientists are starting to speak out too, sharing experiences that have led some to leave science altogether. Lab life to fieldwork, career paths to career dead-ends - what's happening, why is it so hard to speak out, and what needs to change?
