Two of the women who organized 20,000 people's Google walkout in protest against the company's handling of sexual harassment complaints in November say they face retaliation, according to a letter published by Wired . Claire Stapleton and Meredith Whittaker each detailed that they were demoted from their roles in the company after the expiration.

Whittaker and Stapleton are two of the seven women who helped organize the walkout, and their letters were posted to internal mailing lists at Google. Whittaker, who leads Google's open research, said she was informed that her role would be "dramatically changed." Whittaker wrote that she felt she was forced to choose to leave the company and leave her work with AI ethics and a research center she founded at New York University, called the AI ​​Now Institute.
