Has your daughter been sexually harassed? A new study suggests the answer is very likely yes. Researchers from the University of California, Santa Cruz, found that 90 percent of teen girls surveyed reported they’d been harassed in an academic setting—especially in such male-dominated disciplines as math or science—at least once in their life. Here is what they found:

•    Receiving unwanted romantic attention from a male (67%)
•    Hearing demeaning gender-related comments (62%)
•    Being teased about their appearance (58%)
•    Receiving unwanted physical contact (51%)
•    Being teased, bullied, or threatened with harm by a male (28%)

The survey also showed that girls who were of lower socioeconomic status reported higher rates of sexual harassment—and that older girls were more likely to report sexual harassment than younger girls.

Experts believe that sexual harassment can negatively affect girls’ self-esteem, body image, and achievement.
