Send Nudes? Meet Teens Fighting Sexual Harassment


Avni Singh

Girl Alliance

Boys texting girls to “send nudes” is the new teen flirting ritual. In other words, sexual harassment has been normalized. Hear teens share horror stories of how high school is a breeding ground for sexual harassment and why existing adult-made solutions just don’t cut it. Learn how they have adapted Kathleen Reardon’s Spectrum for Sexual Misconduct framework to high school, how their Girl Alliance ambassadors, sticker campaign, and social media sparked a cultural shift, and how adults can help unleash the youth voice in fighting sexual harassment and other issues.
