Sexual harassment it's a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the civil rights act of 1994. Sexual harassment can happen to both men and women and it can happen in a variety of circumstances. There has been growing cases of sexual harassment, but most worrying it's how lightly the harassers are punished.

We have created this petition to raise awareness about sexual harassment and to increase the chances of fair punishment. 


''WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW IS MORE A MATTER OF AN UNCHECKED CULTURE OF BLAMING WOMEN AND TOLERATING ABHORRENT BEHAVIOUR FROM MEN THAN AN ISSUE OF WHAT’S WRITTEN IN THE LAW BOOKS.'' AMELIA HARNISH

Sexual harassment is treated and punished differently in all countries and cultures. According to most laws in general jail time is only used for the harshest cases like physical assault. However, the number of years usually varies from two to three on average. Violating someone's rights is one of the biggest offences, but taking someone's freedom is far worst. This offence cannot be taken so lightly as it can cause huge trauma to the victim. All causes of sexual harassment have led to trauma and mental health problems. Moreover, the fact that the criminals are not punished harsh enough can cause the victims and other people feel more unsafe. This is the reason why we believe punishment should be harsher as it can also be used as a deterrent to others. 

Thank you for listening to us.
