Noirin Shirley Accuses Florian Liebert: Google Blogger Twitter Engineer Sex Attack Claims
Noirin Shirley Accuses Florian Liebert: Google Blogger Twitter Engineer Sex Attack Claims – Here is a rather unique yet sad story. Recently a professional tech writer for Google filed a complaint with police regarding an incident which supposedly occurred at a tech conference in Atlanta last week. Noirin Shirley says that one of the engineers from Twitter approached her at the ApacheCon event and forced himself upon her, kissing her and putting his hand down her underwear. The Google blogger is furious and says that this incident is not the first time she has had to deal with these types of assaults at conventions she has gone to in the past.
Because sexual harassment cases have become so commonplace at these types of tech conferences, an anti-harassment project has been created to help keep these incidents to an absolute minimum. Shirley says that she feels as though it is not her responsibility to keep from being accosted, but rather other’s responsibility. Those who are working on the project say that in the tech community there have always been problems with gender rights and they are still far behind from everyone else. The engineer who was accused of sexual assault failed to show up at the conference the next day and there was no comment from the police who are currently investigating the case.
