Resource reboot to fight sexual harassment

2017 December 27

AAUW has recently rebooted its online resources to help fight sexual harassment, much in the news thanks to the #MeToo movement.

Sexual harassment, which includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion and also prohibits sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination. Even with Title VII’s protections, many people across the country still face sexual harassment in their workplaces.

LAF’s Know Your Rights resources help people navigate difficult situations at work and on campus. We recently expanded our sexual harassment resources to provide guides for employees, employers, and colleagues. These guides provide employees with steps to take after being sexually harassedadvise employers on how to create a safer office culture and move beyond simply complying with Title VII, and give guidance for colleagues who witness sexual harassment.
