ALA Chicago Midwinter Meeting"
NOTE ADDED 2 FEBRUARY 2015:
I changed the graphic from the ALA Midwinter 2015 logo to one showing the ALA saying "the conversation starts here...," and that is entirely relevant to the point to "get that conversation flowing." That is exactly what I am doing on this new blog called, "Sexual Harassment of Librarians."
Also, I add the following notice:

NOTE ADDED 25 FEBRUARY 2015:
A DMCA (link) complaint, presumably by Lisa Rabey, has been successful. I was trying to "be vocal. Be persistent. Be brave. And most of all, get that conversation flowing." So I am acting accordingly to remove most of the content. (Librarians getting others to remove content. Hmmm. On sexual harassment of librarians, no less. Hmmm. By a librarian being sued for claiming without evidence that another librarian is a sexual harasser. Hmmm.)
I still urge you all to read all of what Lisa Rabey said about the pervasive sexual harassment within librarianship (link).
And I'm still building this resource that I know for a fact is already helping at least one sexually harassed librarian who specifically praised this new resource despite Lisa Rabey's DMCA statement (link).
NOTE ADDED 28 MARCH 2015:
Warning: Lisa Rabey has admitted she lied (link) about a certain librarian being a "sexual predator." She destroyed the career of that librarian. The article of hers that I extensively quoted above has been roundly criticized as follows: "One of the vigilantes was then given a platform in the American Libraries magazine." See:
- "#TeamHarpy: Another Ugly Story of 'Progressive' Vigilantism," by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart, 27 March 2015.
Also, I wrote the following:
