What is sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment is broadly defined as unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. It is predominantly experienced by women and perpetrated by men, which is why we consider it to be a form of gender based violence. Some examples include:

  • Making propositions and sexual advances

  • Wolf-whistling or catcalling you
  • Unwelcome touching, hugging and/ or kissing
  • Making sexual comments or ‘jokes’
  • Sending sexually explicit messages to, or about, you
  • Asking intrusive questions about your sex life
  • Spreading sexual rumours about you
  • Displaying sexually graphic content
