How Difficult is it to Teach Boys and Men not to Harass?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

I recently discussing sexual harassment with a young friend.  I was bemoaning the frequency with which women experience some form of sexual harassment by men.  How hard is to teach boys and men not to harass, I wondered.

My young friend replied, “It’s just as hard for boys and men to learn not to harass as it is for girls and women to learn to love their bodies.” Cultural messages are pervasive indeed.
