Sexual Harassment vs. Sexual Assault
Marta Martinez-Hasty, LCSW, Director of Project Gold at Kristi House, explains cases of sexual assault are when the act happens to somebody. Sexual abuse could be a behavior that takes place.
Normally sexual harassment is done by someone who is in a position of power, she describes.
The expert affirms internet is one of the biggest concern, because it is very accessible. It’s easy for people, to sexually abuse children or harass public, because they can reach so many people and they can find somebody vulnerable on the Internet.
Internet is really used widely and daily as one of the strongest means of abusing children and teenagers, she says.
