What is sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment in Australia is defined as any unwanted or unwelcome sexual behaviour, which makes a person feel offended, humiliated or intimidated.
This can include:
1. Physical or verbal harassment, such as unwanted touching, sexual advances or comments, or leering.
2. Making sexual propositions or requests.
3. Displaying sexually explicit material, such as pornography.
4. Making threats or promises in return for sexual favours.
5. Spreading sexual rumours or making sexual comments about a person's body or appearance.
It is important to note that sexual harassment can occur in any setting, including the workplace, educational institutions, and public places. It is a serious offence and can have significant impacts on a person's mental and physical health.
