    Six members of the 2012 Harvard womens soccer recruiting class who were the
    subjects of a sexually explicit scouting report circulated by the Harvard mens
    soccer team are calling for unity.In a letter to The Harvard Crimson called
    Stronger Together, Brooke Dickens, Kelsey Clayman, Alika Keene, Emily Mosbacher,
    Lauren Varela and Haley Washburn wrote: As women of Harvard Soccer and of the
    world, we want to take this experience as an opportunity to encourage our fellow
    women to band together in combatting this type of behavior, because we are a
    team and we are stronger when we are united.Their letter to the student
    newspaper was in response to a 2012 document written by a member of the mens
    team that rated the physical attractiveness of recruits on the womens team and
    included photos and lewd comments about many of them. It was circulated online
    among teammates. Officials at the Ivy Leaague school would not say whether they
    are investigating to determine whether similar letters were circulated after
    2012.ddddddddddddMore than anything, the women wrote in reply, we are frustrated

    to face throughout their lives.University officials described the document as
    offensive and unacceptable.The six women close their letter with a message to
    the writers.To the men of Harvard Soccer and any future men who may lay claim to
    our bodies and choose to objectify us as sexual objects, in the words of one of
    us, we say together: I can offer you my forgiveness, which is -- and forever
    will be -- the only part of me that you can ever claim as yours. Read their
    entire letter here. ' ' '
