Help women speak up against sexual harassment Help women speak up against sexual harassment Help women speak up against sexual harassment

Hurl the Harasser, a virtual game produced by the American University Game Lab, illustrates the difficulties that survivors of sexual harassment experience. Often times, women don’t speak up after going through sexual trauma for reasons such as facing the harasser might not allow them to heal. As the co creator of the game, Linsday Grace mentioned that the game is an experiential metaphor, and “the metaphor is that it takes lots of people speaking up to tip the scales of justice against the harasser.”
