With most people’s mind males are the harassers. Harassers

With technology changing and improving we are informed of practically all accidents/incidents that occur is America. It has been clearly noticeable that over the past view years the number of sexual harassment cases taking place is increasing rapidly, though this has been happening it is clear authoritarian figures have not been taking this problem seriously or have been taken it into account and are not trying to prevent it. This avoidance creates serious consequences for today’s society which means we need to make moves now to prevent these actions from happening and save young teens the best years of their lives. When most people hear the term “sexual harassment” they think that the victim is a women and from the opposite sex. Though, in this matter the harasser and the victim can be of the same sex or a male can be the harassed, gender plays but a small role.Most people believe the action of assault or harassment is usually carried out by a person who is in a position of power which is typically why in most people’s mind males are the harassers. Harassers try so hard to keep what they are doing hidden because they know it is against the law. Being someone’s boss or higher-level co-worker gives the harasser the power and makes them able to hind the whole situation. Judith Brandenburg wrote in her book Confronting Sexual Harassment: ” Like any other power struggle, many instances of sexual harassment are initiated and negotiated by a person in a position of authority and are sustained at the expense of another who cannot counter demands without risk of reprisal.”Although sexual harassment is not an accepted deed within society, it has its motivations. Harassers are people and they make mistakes, but there is something pushing them to commit such behaviour. The most used and common reason is the way women dress, the way women dress in others eyes gets beyond beautiful or attractive, which for some is irresistible. “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” This quote is from our “wonderful” President Trump which goes along the lines of the statement before. It is disgusting. Women should be able to go out in public in clothes that make them feel good without people catcalling or physically acting on their feelings.
