Who becomes a victim of bullying and who becomes a victim of sexual harassment? I used a qualitative method in form of individual interviews with five girls.

Some of the girls meant that girls in general does not object to the insults. Some thought that enticing dressing could start sexual harassment and some meant that it was groundless. (Less)
