Sexual Harassment & Sexual Assault
(253) 474-7273
What is Sexual Harassment?
Any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct
of a sexual nature.
Sexual Harassment
Sexual Harassment can include things such as: inappropriate comments or jokes, demands for sexual activity or unwanted touching, pinching or grabbing.
Hostile Environment: When the harasser’s actions make you feel uncomfortable just by being in the same place as them. At school, this could be anywhere: classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, cafeteria or buses.
Agree / Disagree
(Use Once!)
Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment are rare and only happen to young attractive women.
Agree Unsure Disagree
1 in 4 girls are sexually assault by the time they are 18.
1 in 6 boys are sexually assault by the time they are 18.

Sexual assault and harassment are not about flirting or sexual attraction. They are about using a sexual act or behavior as a tool to gain power and control. They are offensive, degrading, humiliating, and often frightening and insulting.

The difference between good-natured harmless flirting and sexual harassment is how it makes the other person feel. If your conduct makes another feel uncomfortable or angry, it may be sexual harassment.
Victims can be anyone
Perpetrators can be anyone
Silence means it's OK!
Agree Unsure Disagree
Silence is no substitute for enthusiastic, positive consent.
“They didn’t say no” means they also didn’t say yes.
Sexual assault and harassment are scary and confusing to a victim – everybody reacts in very different ways!
Don’t assume you can interpret silence.
If it's not happening to me it's none of my buisness, so I shouldn't get involved.
Scenarios - What
flags do we see?
“You are at a party. During the past hour you notice one of your male friends has been talking to a young woman. They seem to be having a good time but it is clear that the woman has had too much to drink. At one point your friend walks by you and you hear him say he is just going to get her "one more" and "that should be enough."  
A few minutes later you see him put his arm around the young woman and start to lead her upstairs.”
"You are at your locker between classes. You see a group of guys walking down the hall. Two lockers down, you notice one of the boys sneaking up behind a girl and slapping her butt. All the guys are laughing and calling her "slut". The bell rings and everyone walks to class."
Agree Unsure Disagree
"If two people have flirted in the past it does not mean they will want to keep flirting in the future."
Sexual Assault Victims often experience...
Social withdrawal
Numbing/apathy (detachment, loss of caring)
Loss of self-esteem
Loss of security/loss of trust in others
Students who experience sexual harassment are more likely to avoid the person who bothered or harassed them, talk less in class, not want to go to school, change their seats to get away from the harasser or find it hard to pay attention in school.
Most perpetrators are male,
Most men are not perpetrators!
Trade-Offs: Trading something for a sexual favor. The harasser could promise things like good grades, a spot on a sports team, protection or even threaten punishment in order to get what they want.
