How to talk to boys about misogyny

This article by Sophie King-Hill (published in The Conversation) arises from a 2023 report from the UK House of Commons Women and Equality Committee, suggesting that sexual harassment is rife in English schools – and overwhelmingly it’s boys harassing girls. The article says:
