CW: Sexual Harassment 

By: Yunmei Li

In January 2018,  when Doctor Luo Qianqian reported abuse by her supervisor, Chen Xiaowu, on social media many more #MeToo stories went public. In July and August, Lei Chuang, Zhu Jun, Master Xuecheng, and more and more sexual harassment cases came to light, some of them still drawing attention today.

People often ask questions about sexual harassment:

“My friend was harassed, how can I help her?”
“In sexual harassment, why do victims have a hard time speaking out?”

“In face of sexual harassment, how do you protect the survivor’s safety and privacy and disclose the name of the perpetrator at the same time?”
“Do I call the police?”
“How can I help to provide a safe and supportive place for victims to speak out?”

The Handbook Against Sexual Harassment 

In order to provide professional advice about handling sexual harassment, in August 2018, with the help of more than twenty volunteers, the Handbook Against Sexual Harassment was created. The Handbook Against Sexual Harassment focuses on how to handle being sexually harassed, what to do you if see someone or think someone is being sexually harassed and gives advice to survivors.

The Printed Version of the Handbook

One month later, 074 Law Line for Female Workers published a short version handbook for the workplace specifically. Compared to the complete version online, the short version and handbook for the workplace are brief but useful– they answer questions about sexual harassment in terms of the definition, the pattern of manifestation, how to react, etc. The handbook for workplace also introduces all related laws in China.

Currently, 074 Law Line for Female Workers is sending out handbooks for free to anyone in need. Girl Up East Asia has received 100 hard copies and is sending them out to clubs in China.

今年一月,北航博士罗茜茜实名举报博士生导师陈小武性骚扰,带出了众多女生的#MeToo故事。七月和八月,媒体上曝出雷闯、朱军、学诚法师等数不清的性骚扰事件,有的目前依旧在发酵……

在性骚扰事件中,人们常常遇到这些问题:

“好朋友被性骚扰了,我该怎么帮Ta?”

“被性骚扰了,感到羞耻的明明应该是骚扰者,为什么受害者却感到难以启齿?”

“面对性骚扰,怎样做既能保护受害者的隐私与自身安全,又能揭发施害者?”

“报警了,要做些什么?”

“怎样给性骚扰受害者提供支持性的环境让Ta们勇敢发声?”

为了给行骚扰事件进行专业性的建议,2018年8月,在二十多名志愿者的帮助下,《反性骚扰手册》问世了。一个多月后,074职场女性法律热线又推出了纸质版的反性骚扰手册简版和职场篇。

反性骚扰手册简版把如何应对性骚扰列为重点,将性骚扰发生的不同阶段受害者需要注意的事项尽可能详细地列出,给受害者带去实用的建议。

比起线上的详尽版本,反性骚扰手册简版和职场篇短小精悍,它们简洁地回答了关于性骚扰的定义、表现形式、如何应对等问题。反性骚扰手册职场篇详细介绍了中国的相关法律。

目前,074职场女性法律热线正在给需要的人免费发放反性骚扰手册。Girl Up东亚区已获赠100份并且给目前在中国地区的社群寄送。
