What began as a hashtag has become a revolution. In 2017 the Me Too movement dominated the headlines, impacting not only workplaces but also campuses and classrooms. This book takes a close look at the issues of sexual violence and harassment and provides information on what you can do to make yourself, your friends, and your community safer. Sexual violence and harassment are alarmingly widespread problems that we as a society have only just begun to confront. From the legal framework for fighting harassment to bystander intervention tips, and from safe-dating strategies to understanding sexual abuse, these books help readers navigate a complex world of shifting standards and expectations. Each title in the SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND HARASSMENT series includes color photos and charts throughout, and back matter including an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities, and expand their viewpoints through our content rich nonfiction books. Key Icons in this series are: Words to Understand, shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced color type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions, building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content-rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter referring back to subjects covered within. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the material they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and give readers suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the readers knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field
