Stop harassment of female students

Letters

IT is sad to read on our daily papers about the harassment of female students by male students at the country’s premier learning institution. Why should female students live in fear of being harassed and abused?Why should male students touch them inappropriately and verbally abuse them when they should be partnering them and sharing ideas and resources to achieve their dreams?We can’t have such people taking other decent students’ space. If nothing is done to address this, these perpetrators will become criminals and wife-bashers in the future. The University of PNG administration should interview all female students on campus and see if they feel safe to live on campus. Terminate the perpetrators.Female students in other institutions should speak up too if they don’t feel safe.Find the cause of harassment and uproot it.
