Merit: From Anyone to No One
By: Denise Tang Ramos (Faculty of Social Sciences)
Theme: Preventing Sexual Harassment
People hold stereotypes on who “can” or “cannot” be sexually harassed. For example, how men cannot be victims, how women’s clothing affects their potential to be victims etc. In order to prevent sexual harassment, we need to be aware of the fact that it could happen to anyone. Without prejudice, more survivors would come forward. More offenders will be punished. Fewer sexual harassment cases will be experienced. With the daunting realization that it could happen to ANYONE, we are, in an equally daunting way, reminded that it should happen to NO ONE.
