Sexual harassment experienced by youths is prevalent; schools very rarely intervene.

Anyone can be a harasser or a victim of harassment. Both boys and girls can be targeted in cases of sexual harassment. No one has to tolerate harassment. It must be dealt with both in schools and outside of them.

Of upper comprehensive school students, 61% of girls and 46% of boys have experienced sexual harassment at some time or repeatedly.*

70% of youths who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or trans gender have experienced harassment**
