Sexual harassment refers to any unwelcome behaviour or gesture, verbal or physical, of a sexual nature. Victims of sexual harassment suffer from feelings of distress, humiliation, or offence. Unless consent has been given freely and voluntarily by a person, any unwelcome actions taken on them count as sexual harassment, which is a criminal offence.

It’s also important to know that sexual harassment can happen to anyone – that means both men and women can be victims or offenders of sexual harassment.
