This video cost a Dean at the University of Jordan her job

Below is the video that cost Rula Quawas her job as Dean at the University of Jordan. It was made by a group of female students who were discussing their experiences of sexual harassment for a feminist theory class. Keep in mind as you watch it that she was fired because this video allegedly harmed the reputation of the university.

This begs a larger question: what harms the reputation of something more – the problems themselves or someone who points them out. It is a sad day indeed when people cannot point out problems without encountering the wrath of those who pretend they don’t exist.
