Abstract
This project aims to understand information constraints in sexual harassment awareness. The aim is to test for these constraints, filling the gaps and then understanding direct and indirect effects (externalities) on different groups. This project will then test whether there are any effects on economic, academic, psychological outcomes and peer relations.

Experimental Design

Experimental Design
subjects receive sexual harassment awareness within clusters in varying degrees to understand direct and indirect effects on primary and secondary outcomes. The design due to varying intensity of treatment helps to also capture spillovers on those who are untreated and also understanding intensity effects on those who are treated.
Experimental Design Details
69 classes of the colleges will be randomized to receive either high intensity or low intensity treatment. 75% of the women in high intensity
classes will receive the treatment intervention, and 25% in low intensity classes will receive the treatment intervention. Men are given at the same time a simple questionnaire that asks them about their incidence of sexual harassment and also about their peer relationships (network information, interaction in other classes) and socio economic demographics.
