Dr. Nicole Reynolds was interviewed for a WOUB piece headlined ‘9to5’ Examines Grassroots Movement for Women’s Workplace Equality, introducing its series “The Story of a Movement.”

Reynolds is associate professor of English and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Ohio University.

“Even into the ‘70s, the certain professions that were open to women heavily policed women’s appearance and their perceived behaviors,” said Reynolds. “Back then, we really didn’t have the terminology to talk about workplace sexual harassment, and there certainly was no legal way for women to deal with it even though they were experiencing it all the time.”
