Fighting sexual harassment in the community

MARQUETTE — Thursday evening, the Marquette Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) hosted a presentation on sexual harassment.

Janet Koski was invited to the Federated Women’s Clubhouse to discuss was sexual harassment is and the efforts within our community to minimize harassment and promote equality.

“So I think the goal tonight is to make everyone aware that this has been something that has been in the news a lot within the last year with the ‘Me Too” movement” said NMU’s Title IX and Equal Opportunity Coordinator, Janet Koski. “Everyone has a right to work in a work environment or a leaning environment that’s free from discrimination which includes sexual harassment”

The audience was comprised of AAUW members, community members and NMU students.

To these women, it’s about understanding how to prevent gender discrimination in both the community and in education.
