  Fox network’s response to sexual harassment reports sends chilling message to victims The Bangor Daily News Opinion April 18, 2017 Tamar Mathieu, Special to the BDN     Sexual harassment reports have long been considered the “cost of doing business.” Recent news reports implicating business leaders, athletes, politicians and celebrities of perpetrating sexual harassment have reminded us that sexual harassment remains a pervasive issue in American society.

How My Mom Learned to Love Her Son The New York Times Opinion January 28, 2017 By Tennessee Jones   My mother has dozens of family pictures in her hallway, but not a single one of me. She keeps recent photos clustered in the spare room where I sleep when I visit. I turn them facedown when I’m there.
