You are Not Alone
Women all over the Country are dealing with Sexual Harassment right now. It's more common in the workplace than anywhere else in the United States.
From subtle remarks to grotesque sexual advances, sexual harassment can take on many different forms. An employee may be a victim of sexual harassment whether or not he or she is directly harassed or is exposed to conduct in the workplace that she or he finds offensive. Sometimes the workplace becomes so hostile that the victim of sexual harassment wants to quit. In other situations, the employer, supervisor, or someone who makes or highly influences employment decisions asks the victim to comply with sexual advances or he or she will be fired.
Every person who is a victim of sexual harassment experiences different effects from the abuse. Effects of sexual harassment can be both private and public. The way a person responds to the assault is determined by a multitude of factors. Oftentimes, victims of sexual harassment do not want to talk about the emotional toll the harassment took on his or her mind and spirit.
You have No Reason to be Afraid
Victims of sexual harassment should not feel shame or guilt for another person’s unwanted advances. Employees have the right to work in an environment that is free of unwelcomed sexual misconduct.
