5. ASKING FOR IT? If she has a sexy style or attitude, then she could be accused of ‘asking for it’. Or ‘deserving’ sexual harassment, assault and even rape. This belief is wrong. It’s ignorant. And it’s dangerous. It keeps young women from being proud of their sexuality and blames them for being attacked. Be aware of sexist beliefs in yourself and others. Speak out. Be the change. Respect yourself. Respect the rights of others.
