By JOAN ZIFF Dr: Marilou McLaughlin, assistant to President Clark, spoke at Monday's student senate meeting about sexual harassment. Sexual harrassment has been discussed in great detail in the senate over the past few weeks. However, McLaughlin took a different approach to this subject. She discussed sexual harrassment between male professors and female students. According to McLaughlin, \Twenty to thirty percent of all women in college are fac- \ ed with sexual harrassment.\ Sexual harrassrnent can range from mild sexual remarks to severe harrass- ment which is pushing students for sexual favors. Only 2 percent of women are faced with severe sexual harrassment, McLaughlin said. McLaughlin stressed three things women victims should not do. They should not: blame themselves, delay reporting, or keep the har- rassment to themselves.. She stated, \Only few professors are offenders but they tend to be repeaters of this of- fense.\ What slrould you do if you are faced with sexual harrass- . ment? McLaughlin said, you must know your rights, no one should have to accept this. Secondly, you should speak up immediately. If your professor offends you, tell him that he is offending you. Always keep records of what has been. said or done, and finally, Report It! Once an incident is reported, the victim decides where it goes from there, McLauglin said. She decides how the situation should be handled. McLaughlin urges all women to see her if they believe they are being harass- ed. \Reporting is essential_if you want it to stop,\ she said. According to Jennifer Parker, the ski mask incident is not allowed to be discussed to visiting students. Parker believes that this incident should be publically . acknowledged. A resolution was passed requesting public acknowledgement and it also condemns the city police for their lack of concern. Ken Deutsch, NYPIRG project coordinator, spoke of certain events NYPIRG is sponsoring this year. The grand opening of Small Claims Counceling Center was Tuesday, Oct. 7. ~uclear / issues, environmental bond, women's issues and the voter registration are all being handled by this organization. Jim Cullen, CCSA presi- dent, stated that the goal of 1400 registered students was surpassed. in the voter registration drive, but the voter coalition is far from over. We must now educate students and get out the vote, he added. NYPIRG will help educate the voters, said Deutsch, ad- ding the organization has received permission from the Press to have candidates issues and stands printed in an upcoming edition. ~-- .. · .. - ~ - ..
