Sexual harassment can be a form of discrimination against the victim, and is an inappropriate assertion of power by the perpetrator. Sexual harassment can occur anywhere, in person or online.
Examples of sexual harassment include;
In any environment, it is important that you assess the situation. If you feel you are in danger, take immediate precautions.

Accepting rape myths only helps to create environments in which many individuals are disempowered. This includes everyone; women, men, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
