Sexual Harassment. No One Asks For It.
We’re challenging sexual harassment and violence on our campuses. We want our University to be a place where students and staff feel respected, supported, and safe.
The term ‘sexual harassment’ is used to describe any unwelcome behaviour of a sexual nature, from what is often thought of as “harmless banter” through to sexualised jokes, wolf-whistling, and unwanted physical contact including groping and even sexual assault. Sometimes sexual behaviour can be consensual but if someone else is making you feel uncomfortable, intimidated, or humiliated then it is harassment.
Edinburgh University Students’ Association, Edinburgh University Sports Union and the University of Edinburgh are clear that sexual harassment, in any form, is never acceptable.
