Madison Conoley, the First Secretary of the United States of America Embassy in Nigeria, has made it clear that the male gender should also be considered as victims of sexual harassment while finding a solution to the scourge.
Conoley stated this on Tuesday at Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, during an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the 16th annual conference and celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Fulbright programme.
According to him, “We very much support the association’s (Fulbright Alumni Association of Nigeria) efforts to address the issues in a transparent way.
“We know from empirical studies that men are not only aggressors, they are also victims of sexual harassment. If we want to solve this problem, we need the full conversation from all segments of society and all genders.”
