Sexual harassment is unwanted sexual advances, often happening at work, at school, or on the street where refusing can be a great disadvantage to the victim.
Unwelcome words, actions, gestures or behaviors can cause you to feel victimized, humiliated, harassed, embarrassed or even tormented. As with other forms of sexual assault, your stress and anxiety from being harassed can worsen over time.
Advocates from the Day One network can help you develop a safety plan, provide support, and explore options. Call the Minnesota Day One Crisis Hotline number 1.866.223.1111.
