Deconstructing Sexual Harassment
One of the challenges of addressing sexual harassment is that it is, to a large extent, hard to define. It could be reduced to “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.” But there’s a lot more to sexual harassment than just a range of hostile or offensive acts. And while the absence of laws to criminalize and challenge sexual harassment encourages such behavior in society, the absence of sexual education to young people creates unjust sexual relations, which further promotes such acts. This animated video takes a look at how sexual harassment manifests itself in society and what its implications are.
