How did this adversely affect your education, access to health care, or promotion within the workplace? What options were you able to take advantage of in addressing this issue?To keep things brief, I recently had a conversation with my boss to discuss several inappropriate interactions I have had with a female coworker over the past year with whom I had zero romantic relations. I had mulled over this for quite a while before finally bringing it to management's attention who agreed that from my perspective that I had experienced blatant sexual harassment. At this time, I'm glad it's off my chest, and I learned a lot about the perspective of being a victim and what goes through one's mind when they choose not to report for some time.
In the essay, I would leave out the sultry details. At most, I would say that I received inappropriate texts and an inappropriate gift at work on Valentine's Day from a coworker. I would be focusing heavily on what I felt as a victim, what I learned from being a victim, and how I developed the courage to stand up for myself.
