It is emotionally draining and stressful at times. Having a community supporting means a lot.

At some point the plant community will need to acknowledge how we support harassers and their institutions and attack victims and their families I'm tired of my family and I being threatened so I won't speak. I've learned the rules of the game But I hope yall are listening Retweeted by paleogenomics

Ending violence against women and girls is everyone’s business. How are YOU taking action? Retweeted by paleogenomics

My defense is taking a lot of energy, time and resources but not a bit of my happiness, willingness and conviction that speaking up and fighting against all forms of violence is the right thing to do. For my girls and all the girls 2/2 #25Nov ✊💜🔥

Today, in light of the international day for the elimination of violence against women, I'd like to share how I continue to experience violence by the sexual harasser described in this story. He's filed a lawsuit (defamation of course) 1/2 #25Nov twitter.com/paleogenomics/…

@Xpidxaa_bi Te abrazo Jocelyn. Admiro tu fortaleza e integridad. Estoy para ti 💜💜💜

P.s. Stay tuned for future editions of this course at UNAM!

Teaching a semester on paleogenomics was a fantastic experience. Thanks to @marce_save @FSanchezQuinto and Daniel Piñero for inviting me to teach it! And thanks to all the students, we learnt a lot from you too! The future looks bright for paleogenomics research in Mexico! 2/3

Also thanks to our other amazing guest speakers: @DeepFriedDNA, @MiriamJBravo1, @magiabb1, @LoganKistler, Victor Moreno and Pablo Librado 3/3

Since the outbreak of #COVID19, there has been a spike in reports of violence against women. #16Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an opportunity to make a difference for the better. Every one of us has a role to play. #OrangeTheWorld Retweeted by paleogenomics

Scientists question Max Planck Society’s treatment of women leaders An open letter signed by 145 female scientists from across the world expresses concern over recent dismissals of women leaders nature.com/articles/d4158… Retweeted by paleogenomics

I’m lucky to have access to this service. It’s a service to State’s working mothers (since my University is public, I’m considered a state employee). I know of other daycare options for working mothers (not state ones) that are equally good & others that are not as good.

If we can have this in Mexico, a developing country with a fragile economy, I don’t understand why it cannot be possible in the USA.
