I’m sure that most people on my friends lists are already aware of the sexual harassment incident at Readercon, but here’s my attempt at a link round-up:
The key links:
- July 16th: Genevieve Valentine: “Readercon: The Bad and the Ugly”. This is Valentine’s initial public report of what happened. (also at her official site)
- July 27th: Genevieve Valentine: “Readercon: The Verdict” (also at her official website)
- includes, in the comment thread, a report from Kate Kligman who also experienced harassment from Walling.
- July 27th: Readercon: “Statement from the Readercon Board of Directors”
- July 28th: Genevieve Valentine: “Updates to the Readercon Response.” (LJ)
- July 29th: Veronica Schanoes: “Letter/petition to the Board of Readercon” (now on page 2).
- Aug 5th: Readercon concom: “Public Statement By the Readercon Convention Committee”
- Aug 5th: Genevieve Valentine: “Readercon: The Outcome”
Other link collections:
- Jim Hines: “Another Con, Another Creep”.
- Tracy Hurley: Google+
- That Word Grrl in the inclusive_geeks LJ community: “Oh that just tears it…”
- N.K. Jemisin: “Dear Fandom: Grow the Fuck Up”
- Timmi Duchamp: “Post Readercon”.
- Wis[s]e Words: “Minimise, Doubt, Excuse, Shift Blame”
- Veronica Schanoes/We’re living in Gothic times: “Why not come forward?”
- Alex Dally MacFarlane/foxfinial: “it’s the house telling you to close your eyes”
- Liz Henry: “Readercon creeper”. I think that this post is the first (chronological) post that publicly identifies the person under discussion as René Walling.
