More than 80% of teenagers have experienced sexual harassment in school at least once. In this teen - centered video program students learn to recognize sexual harassment and to understand why these behaviors are harmful. They also learn how to stop harassment and where to go for help. Two young hosts and Elisabeth Schroeder, EdD, MSW (a leading teenage sexuality expert) offer concrete suggestions to victims of harassment and detail their rights under Title IX. For harassers, they emphasize that harassment can get them into trouble with their school and even the law. Video reenactments focus on the victims of harassment and illustrate how harassment can take many forms, including physical touching and groping, verbal jokes and rumors, gay bashing, and hurtful text and online messages. Real students vividly describe the emotional consequences of being harassed and counteract the perception among many students that harassment is just a joke and no big thing.
