Troubling report on teen sex assaults


(CNN)--There is a troubling report out today about teens and sexual harassment.

Nearly half of students in grades seven to 12 experienced sexual harassment last school year.

That's the finding of the American Association of University Women.

Some students said they were sexually harassed while in school.

Others said it happened online through emails, text messages or on Facebook.

Girls reported being harassed more than boys -- 56 percent compared to 40-percent.

87-percent of those harassed said they did not want to go to school, had trouble sleeping and felt sick to their stomach.
