If you get harassed online, you can do something about it

According to one 2014 study, almost 30 percent of youth said they’d experienced some type of harassment online within the previous six months. Most of them never reported the harassment. Online sexual harassment crimes, largely affecting women, require special training for law enforcement—and the victim needs to take the first step. “Sexual harassment can leave a mark of fear on a teen. Young people are afraid that telling someone could make the situation worse.” A commentary by Marianna Romero is on Richmond Pulse.
