Sexual Harassment at Universities in Melbourne – Support Group

If you have had an experience of subtle sexual harassment at a university in Melbourne, please make contact. The purpose of this group is to offer emotional support to those who do not feel heard or feel demonised by raising sexual harassment allegations or complaining about subtle sexual harassment. This at its core is power games where a person is not being up front and honest about the situation.

In my experience very few deeply understand the reality for targets. This group is to show respect, compassion and understanding for those who do not feel heard and cannot find a way to resolve the matter. If you feel suicidal, note I am not a counsellor, but I genuinely understand. I am here to deeply listen and guide you towards healing.

Examples of this behaviour may include:

staring or leering
unnecessary familiarity, such as deliberately brushing up against you or unwelcome touching
suggestive comments or jokes
insults or taunts of a sexual nature
intrusive questions or statements about your private life
displaying posters, magazines or screen savers of a sexual nature
sending sexually explicit emails or text messages
inappropriate advances on social networking sites
accessing sexually explicit internet sites
requests for sex or repeated unwanted requests to go out on dates
behaviour that may also be considered to be an offence under criminal law, such as physical assault, indecent exposure, sexual assault, stalking or obscene communications.
