In spite of the cultural shift expected in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, sexual misconduct and harassment are still widespread issues in academia, and talking about them remains taboo. 
In 2017, the #MeToo movement became viral on social media. All around the world, people used the hashtag to share their stories. #MeTooSTEM quickly joined the movement, exposing the extent of sexual harassment in the laboratories.
On the occasion of Sexual Assault Awareness Month #SAAM (April), ALBA gathered relevant resources on the subject.

Trigger warning*: some resources are testimonials that might hurt the sensibility of the readers.
