• Crackdown on laddish campus culture • Dorset school 'isolates' up to 40 pupils for 'pencil case infingements' The school then banned children from talking about it on social networking sites saying it was "damaging the school's reputation".
The school's prospectus states "appropriate and sensible sex education is an important element in the work of the school in preparing students for adult life".
In their recent study (AAUW 2006) on sexual harassment at colleges and universities, the AAUW claimed that while both men and women were targets of sexual harassment, "women are disproportionately negatively affected." In the "Report Card on Gender Equity," the NCWGE that 30 percent of undergraduate students, and 40 percent of graduate students, have been sexually harassed.
The definition of sexual harassment includes harassment by both peers and individuals in a position of power relative to the person being harassed.
In their 2006 study, the AAUW found that this was the most common rationale for harassment by boys—59 percent used it.
Less than one-fifth (17%) of those boys who admitted to harassing others say they did so because they wanted a date with the person.
(Boland, 2002) In late 2006/early 2007 a study revealed that more than 20% of all boys had been harassed by a female student.
In 15% of all cases the girl admitted to sexually harassing the boy and asserted the reasons of "I thought it was funny" and "I'm not doing any harm, it's what he wanted". Peer-to-peer sexual harassment is three times more likely than perpetration by teachers or other school faculty.
