Rape Crisis describes sexual harassment as any unwanted behaviour of a sexual nature that makes you feel distressed, intimidated or humiliated. It can take lots of different forms. It can include or be called sexualised bullying. You don’t have to have objected to a certain kind of behaviour in the past for it to be unwanted and constitute harassment.
For this project we have categorised incidents which involve unwanted sexual touching as Sexual Assault.
