Sexual harassment can happen to anyone in a variety of settings, particularly at school and in the workplace.

This book answers readers' most pressing questions about sexual harassment, including how to identify it, its causes, and its effects. It also provides guidance and resources for anyone experiencing or witnessing sexual harassment.

Unfortunately, sexual harassment is an all-too-common reality for many women and men. But what exactly constitutes sexual harassment, and how is it different from assault, bullying, and other forms of unwanted attention? Why is sexual harassment so common? How can being sexually harassed impact an individual’s academic or work performance, psychological well-being, and even physical health? What can you do if you experience sexual harassment or believe someone else is experiencing it?
