The S.A.F.E. Place Peers SF State defines sexual harassment as: “Sexual harassment occurs when a student, staff or faculty member of SFSU interferes with another’s access to education or employment by giving them unwanted sexual attention.” The harasser can be anyone (classmate, professor, co-worker, friend, relative, stranger) Sexual harassment can occur anywhere (in class, in the workplace, at home) There may or may not be witnesses The harassment can be one time or repetitive The victim and harasser can be of any gender The victim and harasser may or may not be the same gender The harasser may or may not be aware that they are even harassing you Sexual harassment situations can vary quite a bit...

Using sexist phrases, like “dumb blondes”
Claiming that “women cry more” or are “too emotional”
Announcing that “women can’t manage” or “workers will not work for a woman/man”

Repeatedly asking out a person who is not interested Examples of Requests for Sex:

Making facial expressions such as winking, throwing kisses, or licking lips Examples of Sexual Criminal Conduct:
Threats of harm
Forced sexual touching
Attempted or completed sexual assault
Any attempted or completed grabbing, touching, or forcing sexual activity without consent is a sexual crime Common psychlogical, academic, professional, financial, and social effects of sexual harassment Short-term effects for girls include embarrassment, anger, and low-self esteem. (Whealin, 2002; Timmerman, 2004) Girls tend to internalize negative concepts if they hear them repeatedly. Even when they are untrue, they begin to believe negative things about themselves (Whealin, 2002) Comments made to girls about their bodies, even complimentary, have a potential to be harmful to a girl's psyche. The most severe and frightening outcome is a possibility of suicide. There is a greater potential for frequent harassment victims to attempt suicide when compared to those with no history of being harassed. Some of the psychological and health effects that can occur in someone who has been sexually harassed as a result of stress and humiliation:
-depression -sleeplessness/nightmares -feeling betrayed and/or violated
-anxiety and/or panic attacks -shame and guilt -feeling angry/violent toward other
-difficulty concentrating -headaches -feeling powerless/out of control
-fatigue/loss of motivation -stomach problems -increased blood pressure
-eating disorders -alcoholism -loss of confidence and self esteem
-withdrawal and isolation -overall loss of trust -traumatic stress
-post-traumatic stress disorder -complex PTSD -suicidal thoughts/suicide How to become an ally on campus! Why is it so important? What is allyship?
An ally is someone who works to end oppression within his or her personal and professional life. An ally works to end a form of oppression from which they receive privilege. For example, a white person who works to end racism, a cisgender person who works to end transphobia/cissexism, or a straight person who combats heterosexism. Allies align themselves with the people over whom they hold privilege and work to dismantle the system of oppression that gives them those privileges.
Working to stop Sexual Harassment is an obligation that
all of us who are interested in equality have. Having an Allyship to combat sexual Harassment/ Violence gives the opportunity for people to work together to create a safe environment, where everyone has a responsibility. Working together to end a phenomena that has been going on for years is the only way to combat sexual abuse to anyone in any setting.

An Allyship in many ways will set a standard, and a united front against unwanted sexual attention/ violence. If one understands that he or she has a responsibility to ending sexual Harassment, hopefully less cases of this happening. Men Can Stop Violence
The SAFE Place Men’s Program mobilizes male students to prevent men's violence against women and other men

build young men's capacity to challenge harmful aspects of traditional masculinity, to value alternative visions of male strength, and to embrace their vital role as allies with women and girls in fostering healthy relationships and gender equity.

The SAFE Place Men’s Program sees men as partners in solving the problem of sexual violence. Violence against women is not just a women's issue, but rather a community issue.
