We all agree that sexual harassment is wrong. So why are so many people still forced to endure it - every single day?
Unequal power structures and poor societal norms mean that perpetrators often go unchallenged and it can be hard for targets and witnesses to know how to respond for fear of making matters worse.
So how do we stand up to gender-based violence in our communities?
This training, developed in collaboration with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organisation (ITCILO) helps learners to become active participants in saying no to sexual harassment when they see someone being targeted.
Through this experience, you will:
- See past the blurred lines to recognise unacceptable behaviour
- Discover a legal framework for identifying sexual harassment
- Learn active bystander techniques for coming to someone’s aid
- Practise a direct intervention on a perpetrator of sexual harassment
This training was created for the ILO, a United Nations agency, to help leaders in the Indonesian garment industry to combat the sexual harassment of their workers.
In it, you’ll meet Dewi and Linh, learn about their struggles with abusive co-workers and practise a direct intervention in an episode of sexual harassment - using your own words.
For many of us, the setting is a long way from home, but the attitudes and behaviours of the perpetrator are surprisingly familiar.
