Women Sue Dartmouth, Accuse 3 Male Professors of Sexual Misconduct

HeadlineNov 16, 2018

Back in the United States, seven women are suing Dartmouth College over rape, sexual assault, harassment and discrimination. Three male professors—Todd Heatherton, William Kelley and Paul Whalen—are accused of creating a “21st Century Animal House.” The three men allegedly coerced women into drinking, and groped, leered at and in some cases raped the women. The lawsuit alleges that a “predatory boy’s club” culture made female students feel trapped and forced into unwanted acts for fear of risking their careers. Dartmouth reportedly ignored reports of the professors’ conduct for 16 years, and the university allowed the men to either retire or voluntarily resign rather than face legal or disciplinary action.
