Sexual Harassment On Campus

“a journey of a thousand miles begins with a first step…”

– Lao Tzu

Sexual Harassment has been in the news again over the month of  February. Citing a  baseline survey conducted by the Female Students Network of Zimbabwe published in 2016, reports say that about 74 percent of female students in the country’s tertiary institutions have been victims of this abuse. The culprits are male lecturers, male non academic staff and male students.

What is disturbing though is that since 1994, Zimbabwe’s centers of higher learning have been reported to be a hotbed of sexual harassment, yet there are still no policies to address the issue at most of the country’s Polytechnics, Teachers’ colleges and universities. Sadly, the victims do not recognize instances of abuse in some cases. Pointedly, that just says  citizens are ignorant of what exactly sexual harassment is.

This blog post will clarify what exactly constitutes sexual harassment. As the Chinese say, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a first step. This post should then serve as a precursor to your own endeavor to alleviate sexual harassment in Zimbabwe’s colleges by increasing your awareness of this problem in the various forms and intensity in which it manifests.
