The Role of Power and Consent in Sexual Harassment (Grades 9-12)
Sexual harassment can involve relationships with a power imbalance, such as teacher to student or boss to employee. It can also happen when people have the same amount of power, such as student to student. All sexual harassment involves a lack of consent and can create a hostile environment. In this module, we provide examples of varying power relationships in sexual harassment situations. We also define and discuss consent, providing clarity on specific consent situations including verbal and nonverbal cues and withdrawal of consent.
