What to do and not to do, in case you were harassed

    • Do not blame yourself.

    • Do not feel ashamed. Clearly and firmly tell the harasser that you find his behavior inappropriate/offensive.

    • Speak-up! Do not ignore the harassment, hoping that it will stop on its own.

    • Keep a detailed record (dates, times, places, names of harasser(s) and witnesses) of all incidents related to the harassment.
