At US Antarctic base hit by harassment claims, workers are banned from buying alcohol at bars

  • Workers at the main United States base in Antarctica will no longer be able to order alcoholic drinks, as new rules state that only alcohol-free beverages can be served at the base's bars. This change is aimed at improving morale and welfare at the base.
  • An investigation by the Associated Press revealed a disturbing pattern of women who have experienced harassment or assault at the base, and their claims being downplayed by their employers. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has acknowledged the issue and is implementing new measures to address and prevent sexual harassment and assault.
  • The NSF's previous attempt to attribute high rates of sexual misconduct to alcohol consumption has been criticized by survivors, who view it as an attempt to shift blame away from the perpetrators. However, survivors have also recognized the positive step the NSF is taking by making efforts to improve the culture at the base.
