Sexual harassment

It is sexual harassment when a woman is exposed against her own will to a sexual approach either physical or verbal. Harassment can range from violence or rape to indecent remarks. Sexual harassment can occur wherever people meet, i.e. in schools, organisations and shops but first of all at work. Harassment at work can have serious consequences because the woman is most commonly the subordinate. If she protests, she risks ridicule among colleagues, dismissal and the denial of promotion or career advancement.

Reactions to sexual harassment can be: 

  • fear;
  • headaches or other physical symptoms;
  • depressions;
  • shame and guilt;
  • sexual problems.

Sexual harassment must not be confused with mutual, acceptable flirtation.
