It is estimated that four out of five teenagers experience sexual harassment at school. Many harassers see their behavior as nothing more than harmless teasing. Often, victims of sexual harassment feel powerless and don’t know what they can do to protect themselves.
Many bystanders who watch silently or laugh, don’t understand the part they play in perpetrating this behavior and the responsibility they have to stop it.
Under the direction of experts in the field, a group of teens, including those who have experienced sexual harassment, discuss the reality of life in high school today: how to tell the difference between unwanted attention and flirting, the influence of the media, what victims and bystanders can do, and the importance of reporting sexual harassment when it occurs.
