Tips for working women to avoid Sexual harasments

Tips for working women to avoid Sexual harasments

1. Keep appropriate company
Do not maintain relationships with individuals around whom you are uncomfortable. Distance yourself from individuals who seem to be preoccupied with thoughts, words and actions of a sexual nature.
Find friends that can be trusted and appreciated. Have things in common, such as senses of humor and jobs.

2. Act confidently
Weak individuals are often targeted as victims. By acting and speaking in strong ways, individuals take themselves out of many situations where harassment may occur. Let others know sexual harassment will not be tolerated. If a person makes a lewd comment, ask them not to. Keep your position on the matter clear.

3. Dress and act modestly
It is important to understand that some people put themselves, unknowingly, in questionable situations. They may be interpreted as welcoming such advances by dressing or acting inappropriately.
It is never the victim's fault if sexual harassment occurs, but it is important to distance yourself as much as possible from situations where such actions can take place.

4. Keep an eye on the workplace
If you are manager at your workplace, ask employees if they have any concerns. Make sure nothing that can be interpreted as sexual harassment has been seen or heard. Take appropriate action if sexual harassment is suspected or experienced.

5. Know of companies Sexual harassment policies
Employees should be aware of the company's anti-sexual harassment stance. They should also be given examples of sexual harassment so they understand the nature of the policy.
Explain that such actions will not be tolerated, nor will retaliation against a person who has complained about such harassment.
