Sexual harassment has touched many women and men; I have dealt with it personally only a year ago. We can only hope that instances of such insensitive, bullying behavior will decrease as our society evolves and becomes more respectful to women, girls, gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender folks. But, it’s up to each of us to confront it and to support others when they face it.
This lesson in From Adversaries to Allies: A Curriculum for Change–Sexual Harassment Power Shuffle–is designed to help girls:
- Identify when they have felt vulnerable, frightened, embarrassed or hurt
- Know that they are not alone and can turn to other girls for support
About three years ago, the Chrysalis Foundation purchased this curriculum for all the girls’ groups. If your group was around then, one of the facilitators should have it.

It’s really sad and scary to know that this had actually happened, and could be happening close by.
We take security and protection for granted, but even the most secure neighborhoods and circumstances can bring out the worst case scenarios that can harm a girl emotionally and physically. The scar these everyday instances leave on our psyche is immeasurable, eventually making an individual insensitive to such incidents and devastating one’s self image. Its really a sad situation!
