“Hilda” has given up collaborations and papers because of harassment and hostility to women in science. She has decided to leave science. She declined to provide a photo.

I Am Afraid: I will have my name and career destroyed by them.

This Has Cost Me: A post-doc position and numerous co-author papers.

Something You Should Know About Me: I’m planning on leaving academia.

Is There a Bright Side: To know that I am not alone.
