Sexual harassment, rape myths and sexism in Bénin’s school system: A field study

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Sexual harassment serving the role of corruption is common in West African schools, which severely impacts the educational system. Sexism and internalized myths about rape are related to sexual violence towards women. In a field study, 270 students from high schools in Bénin reported their experiences of sexual harassment and their attitudes towards women and rape. Frequency of harassment was high. Both sexism (hostile and benevolent) and rape myths were related to the perception and acceptance of the harassment and the allocation of blame. Attempts to reduce infringements are necessary and need to address fundamental attitudes in girls, boys and teachers.
