The 2012 atheist and skeptic harassment policies campaign was a push for the atheism and skepticism geek communities to adopt anti-harassment policies for their events, following discussion about how women in these communities were verbally warning each other about consistently badly behaved men.

Stephanie Zvan first called for policies on May 22 in Making It Safer in the Meantime. By the following day she reported positive responses from five conferences in Real Progress. However, controversy mounted around women's presence at TAM (The Amazing Meeting) and whether harassment was a factor in women's TAM attendence.
