More than 60 percent of college students experience sexual harassment on campus, but many are unsure what to do about it when it happens. Find out what sexual harassment looks like, what your rights are, and how to bring attention to the problem. Every campus should be harassment-free, and every person can help make that happen.
Holly Kearl is the author of Stop Street Harassment: Making Public Places Safe and Welcoming for Women (Praeger, 2010) and co-author of a national report on sexual harassment in grades 7-12, Crossing the Line: Sexual Harassment at School (AAUW, 2011).
She founded Stop Street Harassment in 2008 and has worked full time for AAUW (the American Association of University Women) since 2007 managing programs that address issues like sexual harassment and assault and workplace discrimination. Her work has been cited by the United Nations, USA Today, BBC News, the New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post and National Public Radio.
Admission is free.
