sexual harassment, confusion or complacency?


sitting with a group of moroccans discussing sexual harassment, a problem in morocco all the men and women in the group confirmed, one of the young women commented, 'men, they don't know what harm they are doing.' i couldn't agree more. men don't know what harm they're doing.sexual harassment and all forms of sexual violence, do indeed cause tremendous harm. however, there seems to be some confusion, amongst many men, globally, first of all in understanding exactly what constitutes sexual harassment and secondly, in understanding that sexual harassment does in fact cause harm. as i have travelled through many parts of the world, along side my organization project monma which investigates violence and discrimination against women and girls, the stories of sexual harassment, have been ...






sexual harassment is not a compliment - it's a statement of power


sexual harassment. it's one of those things overly sensitive feminists complain about. women who have it so good they have to find something trivial to whinge about, you know - the ones who just can't take a joke. this is the dominant narrative when it comes to sexual harassment. it's not a real issue, or not a serious one at least, but rather, women getting offended over nothing and finding problems where they don't exist. sexual harassment is often regarded as just a joke, harmless banter or even a compliment- an innocent comment a woman got upset over. for many women, however, sexual harassment is just one of the realities of being a woman. it's something we're supposed to shrug off with a good-natured laugh or quietly endure. this normalised harassment has a real life impact on w...






for men who don't mean anything by it: sexual harassment matters


for men who don't mean anything by itsexual harassment matters.sexual harassment sounds such a formal term, it sounds like a case at an employment tribunal. everyone knows that sexual harassment is wrong and most probably illegal and certainly not politically correct. but an awful lot of people think that men sexually harassing women in the street is just harmless banter and that to be concerned or outraged by this is some sort of bourgeois indulgence or privileged first world problem. it is right to be outraged by the normality of street sexual harassment, it matters. it matters even when men don't mean anything by it. it matters even when it was only meant as a compliment. it matters even when it was just a joke. all those men who say that they are not that kind of man and that they wo..

tfl campaign urges women to report all cases of sexual harassment on public tran


sexual harassment on public transport is a routine occurrence for the millions of women who use london’s busses and tubes each year.but despite the fact that unwelcome physical contact or sexual comments make many us feel sick to our stomachs, the majority of women do not report these incidents to the police.in fact, around 90% of people who experience unwanted sexual behaviour would not report it and many believe that offenders can’t be caught.in the hope of changing this, a new campaign is encouraging women who experience sexual harassment on public transport to report each occurrence.the new video - launched by transport for london (tfl), the british transport police (btp), the metropolitan police service (mps) and city of london police (colp) - aims to show that if the police recei...

how the legal world built a wall of silence around workplace sexual harassment


a secret about sexual harassment on the job is finally coming to light. it’s not that harassment is still rampant in some industries, recalling the worst of the “mad men” days. or that networks of women quietly help to protect their co-workers from the worst offenders. the real secret is that our regulatory and judicial systems are complicit in protecting harassers from public exposure and opprobrium. recent revelations about bill o’reilly, roger ailes and harvey weinstein show that they confidentially settled harassment claims in the millions of dollars over decades, using legal maneuvers to keep their conduct under the radar. how common is this? since 1986, when the supreme court first recognized that sexual harassment is a form of discrimination, employers and their attorneys ha...

bill o’reilly brings sexual harassment back out of the shadows


much like anita hill’s 1991 testimony before the senate judiciary committee about being sexually harassed, allegations of serial misconduct by bill o’reilly can be seen two ways. ms. hill’s riveting testimony did not stop the supreme court confirmation of clarence thomas, who denied the charges, but it brought sexual harassment to the forefront of national attention. similarly, disclosure of about $13 million in payouts to settle the claims of five women who said they were harassed by mr. o’reilly has yet to derail the fox news host’s career. but he and fox news have paid a price: advertisers not wanting to be seen as tolerating sexual harassment fled “the o’reilly factor” in droves. there is no question that workplace sexual harassment persists, but it is also clear there ...
