If you are sexually harassed/sexually bullied...
When faced with sexual harassment/harassment, you must first check your own feelings. No matter whether the other party is harassing well-intentioned, unintentional or malicious, as long as you/you let the other party know that you/you feel uncomfortable, the other party should respect your/your feelings. Of course, you can judge the situation and choose whether to say "no" bravely and loudly, or tell the other party gently; whether to resist directly or ask for help from others.
In the event that harassing words or actions continue to occur, you may choose to:
- Talk to people you trust and seek support.
- Record what happened in as much detail as possible to facilitate future appeal evidence.
- If you file a complaint with the school, the school will handle the issue of sexual harassment on campus through the "Gender Equality Education Committee" and provide the victim with necessary assistance.
If people around you experience sexual harassment/ sexual bullying...
When someone around you is being sexually harassed/bullied, the most important thing is not to be an accomplice in the situation. For example, when someone speaks a dirty word about the physical characteristics of the person present, thus making the person uncomfortable, we should not fear of making awkward silence, and we should come forward to stop the harasser's words and behaviors. The most important thing is not to fall into the "blame the victim" myth, question the characteristics and behavior of the victim, or question the criteria for identifying the victim. After all, everyone has different physical boundaries and feelings, and we should trust them with support.
In the event someone around you is bothered by sexual harassment/bully and asks for help, you can:
- Be a listener, support and understand him/her, help him/her to stop the harasser
- Provide resources and channels for him/her to seek help, such as the school's safety room, health and counseling center, trusted teachers or community counseling centers, etc.
- File a complaint with the school as a whistleblower, and let the school's Gender Equality Education Committee handle it and provide the victim with necessary assistance
