RAPE: rape is a crime that deals with control, not sex; rape victims should immediately go to an emergency room without changing clothes, showering, or drinking liquids; women are usually raped by someone they know rather than by a stranger; forcing sexual intercourse is never acceptable. SEXUAL HARASSMENT: sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature; four out of five students experience sexual harassment at school; the first thing to do in a situation of sexual harassment is to verbalize your feelings about the unacceptable nature of the behavior.
