Workshop 10/18 “The rise in Reported Incidents of workplace sexual harassment” I have been harassed sexually at school and at work. During class one time, one of the boys decided that he would slap my butt. He said remarks to me which I believe are rude. “Nice ass.”,etc. It made me feel very uncomfortable. I talked to my teacher and told him what had happened. The next day, we had a meeting after class about the boy’s actions. The boy was almost suspended from school. This experience startled me and I had a greater view on what sexual harassment really was. Another time I was working at an Italian restaurant and I worked in the back.

They would also talk about me in a sexual manner. It was disgusting and I felt ashamed

Unformatted text preview: of myself. I felt like I should come to work everyday with a bag on over the top of my head.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
