To increase awareness on the provisions of the Anti-Sexual Harassment Act, the PSHS-SMC GAD, or Gender and Development Commitee sponsored an orientation about the RA 7877 last October 16, 2015. Personnel, parents, and students were the audience of the said orientation since they are the major stakeholders when in comes to issues on sexual harassment.
Attorney Janer G. Sanchez of the Commission on Human Rights, Region XI , discussed on the salient points of the said law, particularly in the context of the academic setting like Pisay. He specifically discussed the definition and elements of sexual harassment and the policy of the State on sexual harassment. He also explained the mechanism of filing complains regarding these offenses in the school setting.
