Two years ago, Theidon went to the chairman of her department when she’d 
learned Harvard had denied her tenure.

“And he was baffled, and suggested I go talk to the vice provost for 
diversity, Judith Singer,” Theidon said in a recent interview at the 
office of one her attorneys.

Theidon said Singer soon met with her, but that the conversation left 
her feeling “stunned.”

“I was told, among other things, ‘Kimberly, they discussed your 
political activities. You know, most people wait on those kinds of 
political activities until they have tenure,’ ” Theidon said.

Theidon, who is an expert on sexual violence, says when Singer cited 
“political activities,” she meant Theidon’s defense of sexual assault 
victims at Harvard. Theidon was a vocal supporter on campus of the 
rights of survivors of sexual assault.
