Description of this Electronic Book
Sexual harassment is any unwanted or unwelcome sexual behaviour which makes a person feel humiliated, offended or intimidated. Recent personal revelations of sexual abuse and assault in the entertainment industry have been given voice by the #MeToo movement and publicly illustrated how prevalent and damaging such unlawful behaviours can be to mostly female victims. This title explores the extent and impacts of everyday sexism and sexual harassment. It offers advice on how offenders, victims, bystanders and society as a whole can address this epidemic of sexual abuse which has, for so many years, gone unchecked and unchallenged in the face of male privilege, in turn perpetuating sex discrimination and gender inequality. This volume also focuses on sexual harassment and violence in the workplace, and how to prevent and report it. Ultimately, we all need to become champions of change to stop sexual harassment. Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
