The #MeToo movement has brought national attention to widespread issues regarding sexual harassment and violence, but one group is often overlooked: school-aged children. In response, the #MeTooK12 campaign was launched last month to expand the conversation around sexual harassment and violence, including Title IX violations in elementary, middle, and high schools. People are often unaware or reluctant to admit there is a problem at such young ages, but unfortunately, instances of sexual harassment and violence have no age limit. Overlooking children in grades K-12 can obviously be harmful, and without proper discipline and age-appropriate conversations, these behaviors can become normalized.
