WATCH: Harvard women’s soccer’s response to ‘scouting reports’ featured in Lifetime video

When it was unearthed last fall that the Harvard men’s soccer team had a yearly tradition of creating sexually explicit reports about incoming recruits on the women’s team, the story brought the topic of harmful locker room talk to the forefront of the national media conversation.

Lifetime continued that discussion this week, releasing a powerful video featuring former Harvard women’s soccer players and their responses to the “scouting reports.”

The video, which is under three minutes in length, highlights the contents of an article that was written by some of the former women’s players in The Harvard Crimson in October.

In response to Harvard’s findings, the university cancelled the remainder of its men’s soccer season in November.
