How can the UK stop harassment and sexual abuse in schools? – podcast | News


Last summer Soma Sara started the website Everyone’s Invited soon after sharing her own account of sexual harassment on Instagram. There has since been a deluge of anonymous testimonies; more than 14,000 of them. They come from children as young as nine years old and paint a picture of misogyny and “rape culture” in UK schools, including groping, coercion, slut shaming and rape.

The Guardian’s senior news reporter Alexandra Topping tells Rachel Humphreys how the fallout has been swift: the Met police have been reviewing the content and encouraging the victims to come forward. The chairman of the education select committee says private school inspections need to be overhauled.

Rachel Humphreys talks to Sara about her campaign and to Cordelia Morrison who works for Tender, which runs workshops in schools about the challenges of teaching young people about consent
