Overview - Violence & harassment

Film: Discrimination

Discrimination means that you are treated worse than others based on your gender, religion, age, sexual orientation or because of where you come from. It is also discrimination if you are treated worse than others because, for instance, you are in a wheelchair or are visually impaired, or because you feel that your gender doesn’t match your body. It is illegal to discriminate against anyone.

Sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is when a person does or says something that is related to the body or sex, which another person finds unpleasant. Sexual harassment is never OK. In fact, it can be a crime.

Making a police report

You should make a police report if you think that you have been a part of something illegal, or if you have witnessed a crime.

Sexual assault

Sexual assault is when a person is forced or coerced into sexual acts. You can get help if you have been sexually assaulted. It is also a crime.
