What Can You Do Yourself?

Unwanted intimacies often develop slowly, making a boundary sometimes difficult to draw. The victim defines this boundary. It takes a lot of courage from victims to acknowledge sexual harassment and intervene. There are several ways to raise the alarm. Make a start by talking about it with people. This could be someone within your private circle, or colleagues. It can help to find out if other colleagues are experiencing the same thing. Together, you will be stronger. You can also go to your supervisor or employer. Your employer is obliged to provide a safe working environment. You can also choose to report this undesirable behaviour. This can be done with the police, or with an independent body that will investigate.
