Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Sexual harassment is recognised as a form of violence against women and as discrimination on the grounds of sex, gender and/or sexuality. It includes non-consensual physical contact, such as grabbing, pinching, slapping, or rubbing against another person in a sexual way. It also includes non-physical forms, such as catcalls, sexual comments about a person’s body or appearance, demands for sexual favours, stalking or non-consensual exposure of sex organs (UN, 2018). Sexual harassment is a violation of the principle of equal treatment of women, men and further genders.
