Sexual harassment: Students fight back

The majority of sexual harassment are exactly those ambiguous terms. Those apparently random touches, those verbal derailments which are minimised and tolerated too often.

Sexual harassment starts when signalled borders are crossed. It happens in all forms and manifestations.

If you have been groped verbally, physically by gestures and looks you shouldn’t bottle it up. It is very important to talk about it with someone, that’s the only way to stop the harassers!

 

Discriminatory behaviour

Lecturers have told gender discriminating jokes? You have been discriminated against because of your gender identity during a lecture/course/practise? There are parts within the university that are discriminative?

 

In any of those cases please contact the equality department. All details will be treated confidentially and nothing will happen without your consent. You can reach us via gleichstellung[at]asta.uni-mannheim.de.
