Sexual harassment shouldn’t be the end of anyone’s education.
One in five girls ages 14-18 have been kissed or touched without their consent. Worse, many schools ignore or even punish girls when they report sexual harassment, including sexual violence. But Title IX requires schools to investigate all reports of sexual harassment to find out if the harassment has made it harder for students to learn or stay in school.
A Toolkit to Stop School Pushout for Girls Who Have Experienced Sexual Harassment, part of NWLC’s Let Her Learn series, will help you find out if your school treats girls fairly when they have been sexually harassed. Use this step-by-step checklist to learn what your rights are, how to change your school’s policies, and where to find help for sexual harassment.
