Tune in to Your Rights...A Guide for Teenagers about TURNING OFF Sexual Harassment.
Morris, Barbra; And Others
Targeted to secondary school students, this booklet discusses sexual harassment. The booklet opens with a vignette about a teenage girl who is harassed by a fellow student and several shorter vignettes describing various types of sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is defined, and nine forms of harassment are listed. The right to a life and an education free from sexual harassment is discused. Methods of dealing with the harassment are discussed, focusing on available choices and questions to ask oneself when deciding what to do. Five vignettes of students with sexual harassment problems are presented for students to suggest appropriate responses. Recommendations for helping victims of harassment are presented. For bystanders, it is recommended that they say they do not think harassment is funny, tell the offender to stop, and walk away. For friends, it is recommended that they be supportive and help the friend document the harassment incidents. For schools, it is recommended that they have policies against sexual harassment and appoint someone to counsel students with harassment problems. The earlier vignette about the high school girl who is being harassed is continued with the girl's response. The booklet concludes with a checklist for students to determine if a school is prepared to handle sexual harassment problems. (ABL)
