Any form of verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, requests for sexual favours and unwelcome sexual advances are considered as sexual harassment. The harasser or the victim may be female or male and may belong to any age group.
Absolutely. Street harassment is one of the most prevalent types. As a female, when I walk around in the city where I live, I often get inappropriate sexual overtures and men shouting disgusting things at me. I think it's terrible that our society condones this behaviour, and it makes me sick.
Sexual harassment may have declined over the years, but it still happens. And when it does happen, it usually goes to the extreme. Us women need to be able to stand up for ourselves and never be afraid to stand up for ourselves.
Sexual harssment is a societal plague. No one owes you their attention, their body, or to look a certain way. Some of the most scary situations of my life have involved me being street harassed and scared to go outside, because of it.
I had on the job sexual harassment when I was in my 20s. I swear i wore sweaters and didn't ask for it, but this creepy guy would always come in when everyone had gone home and would try to rub my shoulders and made me incredibly uncomfortable. It never went further than that, but after I asked him to stop and he didn't, I had to take it to the boss
