Why she left her post at the University in the City of The Mad People, I'll never know. The story is that she wanted to be closer to home. Having been a police officer in the Met I wonder if she had had previous experience of being bullied. Obviously quite a competent person she found, like so many before her, that it was quite simply impossible to do her job at Wretchington. As a high-flying research academic she was managed by an incompetent Yeah Sayer, a woman who told her 'to grow a pair' and 'not to be a victim'. Saying this to a champion of women in science may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. She took her concerns to the top who, rather than assuring her that a cultural change would transform her working experience at Wretchington, offered her an increase of £25k on top of her professorial salary and a 'no-teaching' contract. She was having none of it and leaves in a matter of weeks.
Good luck to her.
