In this article, the author shares a sexual harassment incident that happened to one of her friends at the high school cafeteria. At their school in Escambia County, Florida, there are no class discussions about sexual harassment. No assemblies or seminars. Just a little blurb in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook that is easy to miss, provided that the student ever opens or receives the book at all. Because it is well known around her high school that turning to the deans for help with sexual harassment issues is not an effective means of handling the problem, many girls have had to take matters into their own hands. Either through calm discussions or heated confrontations, more and more girls are demanding respect--with or without the help of the "grown-ups."
