Every day seems to turn up new revelations of sexual harassment. It's also happening to women in science. Many women have simply abandoned their scientific careers. Others waited years to file complaints until their own careers were launched. This hour we talk with several women who are fighting back.
Also, the story behind one of the twentieth century's most famous scientific experiments: the women who did pioneering field studies of the great apes.
