Linda Charmaraman, Ph.D. : The Overlap between Bullying and Sexual Violence in Middle Schools: Perspectives from Students and Educators

Middle school youth and their teachers are seldom the focus of research explaining the bridge between bullying and sexual violence. Through interviews with middle school students and focus groups with their teachers, Research Scientist Linda Charmaraman, Ph.D., has explored and will discuss the following questions: (1) What are student and teacher perceptions of bullying (including cyberbullying) and sexual harassment, including why it occurs, where, when, and to whom? (2) From student and teacher vantage points, what factors in the school environment influence the occurrence of bullying and sexual harassment and what are the consequences? (3) What types of support do teachers need to help them address issues of bullying and sexual harassment? (4) What recommendations do students provide for effectively addressing bullying and sexual harassment?

WCW Lunchtime Seminar Series

    • Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) scholars offer seminar and panel presentations during which they share their work with other scholars and the general public. The WCW Lunchtime Seminar Series, for example, offers residents and visitors to the Greater Boston area the opportunity to hear, in person, about work by WCW researchers and program staff. Other special events bring these researchers and program staff into communities for special presentations to the Centers' many constituents.

    • Recordings of some past lunchtime seminars and other special events may be heard by clicking on the links below. You may need to adjust the volume when playing an audio file on your computer.

    • Please note that data and background information cited in these presentations were current for the date of the presentation but should not necessarily be considered the most current research on the related issues today.
