Sexual harassment at schools

Lessons on consent and what constitutes sexual harassment – including actions such as cat calling and unwanted attention – should be taught in schools.

A student attending a Mt Barker secondary school is concerned her peers feel uncomfortable speaking up about sexual harassment.
She surveyed other senior female students (leaving survey questions in the female toilets of her school) and received 150 replies – 40% of which stated they felt they had been sexually harassed.
