|About the Book|
Sexual Harassment is very similar to Bullying- both are constantly reported in the news and have been blamed in high profile murder and suicide reports. There are many books and web sites that explain the dangers of sexual harassment- education is essential in combating sexual harassment, but defining it is not enough. Ten years of teaching Sexual Harassment and Assault Prevention Programs has taught me two things: 1.Most offenders target people who present the least resistance 2.Many people who have been sexually harassed and/or assaulted feel they are to blame The four things I want you to take away from this book are: 1.There are NO excuses for sexual harassment. 2.It is your right to live free of sexual harassment and/or assault. 3.The victim of sexual harassment and/or assault is NEVER at fault for what happened to him or her. 4.You have the right to say, DONT TOUCH ME! In this book, you will find how important a Verbal Warning is when used to thwart sexual harassment. Equally important is Informing Someone to help stop sexual harassment. When all else doesnt have the desired effect, Self Defense is explained as a last ditch effort to combat sexual harassment. The practical applications of useful self-defense techniques are covered toward the end of the book.
