What is Verbal Sexual Harassment (VSH)?

How can it affect women’s participation in sports?

The following video provides an example of what Verbal Sexual Harassment in sports looks like and what are the psychological effects for women. It involves unwelcome and inappropriate comments, gestures, or remarks of a sexual nature, most often coming from coaches towards athletes.

As women are four times more likely to be a victim compared to a man, this leads women to the abandonment of sports, causing feelings of fear, anger and trauma.

The purpose of the video is to raise awareness about VSH in sports and contribute to the impact of the WHISTLE project.
