Prescribe uniforms for tertiary students to curb sexual harassment on campuses, the Dagbon center for leadership and development has proposed.

This proposal is coming on the back of the BBC’s ‘Sex for Grades’ documentary. The video focussed  on sexual harassment perpetrated by lecturers in universities in Ghana and Nigeria.

Two lecturers at the University of Ghana were seen in the video in compromising situations with investigative journalists who had posed as students.

The documentary has generated several  proposals on how to deal with the issue of sexual harassment especially in tertiary institutions.

A member of the Dagbon Center for Leadership and Development, Musah Usman said this proposal when adopted will yield positive results.

“One key issue that is influencing most male lecturers is the appearance of female students especially during lectures. So we think if tertiary students are made to start wearing prescribed uniforms, it will help curb the sexual harassment issues. Medical students have prescribed uniforms in medical school so we can generalize it now”

“It appears funny but it’s very critical and if Ghanaians should consider that proposal, it’s going to help us reduce this menace. Sexual harassment in teacher training colleges is minimal because they have prescribed uniforms. Most male lecturers are attracted to the kind of dresses female students wear to lectures”, he explained.
