Many women and men have had the strength to come forward recently to report claims of sexual harassment that have occurred against them. While standing up against sexual harassment that has happened in the past is important, being able to know how to prevent sexual harassment and knowing what to do when it does is just as important. The following guide walks you through a few ways to ensure that you can protect yourself from sexual harassment in the future.
Learn How to Identify Sexual Harassment
Knowing how to identify sexual harassment is essential if it is ever going to stop. It’s important for women and men know who to spot sexual harassment when they are being harassed or if someone else is being harassed. There are now sexual harassment clinics being held that can help people learn what harassment is so that they can avoid harassing someone else or being harassed.
Speak Up for Yourself
If you feel that someone at your work says or does something that you consider to be sexual harassment, consider speaking up. Let them know that what they’re saying or doing makes you uncomfortable and you do not feel that it is appropriate. They may not realize that what they’re doing is harassment. While ignorance is no excuse for sexual harassment, being informed that they are being harassing could open the person’s eyes and have them change their ways. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to the person, you can report them to human resources.
