When those posts brought in more stories of academicians being abused, she realized the problem went beyond her discipline.

Clancy and her colleagues conducted a survey, and their results sounded an alarm across the country. Now that work has been recognized by Nature magazine, which named Clancy as one of their “ten people who mattered” in 2013.
