Talking About Stalking

One in six women and one in 17 men will be stalked at some point in their lifetime, making awareness of the issue all the more important. Students and community members gathered at Benedictine yesterday for “Talking About Stalking” – an event put on by several area organizations to educate the public on stalking. Experts discussed the legal and behavioral definitions of stalking, how the crime has changed with social media, and how stalking can be addressed through the legal system.
