The victim of the harassment feels that there isn’t enough evidence to convict their accuser and she or he decides not to report it. Some people feel they’d rather let it go than cause a scene or deal with the scandal that goes along with accusing someone of sexual harassment, especially when the accuser is a boss or other type of respected individual.

How Do I Know It’s Sexual Harassment?
There are a lot of ways that different behaviors can be construed within the workplace, an educational environment, or all kinds of social situations. What one person might feel is a common flirtation, another person might view as uncomfortable and even hostile. The important things I what matters to you and how you felt but there are a few indicators you can use to assess your own experience.
- The behavior is consistent and makes you feel uncomfortable.
- You have told the person making you feel uncomfortable that their behavior is unwanted and it still continues.
- The behavior is hostile and the person exhibiting it follows you or seeks you out to continue the behavior.
