Although I'm not surprised, I found this rather depressing.

Sexual harassment part of daily life

Things really do seem to be getting worse, worse and worse.

As you say, depressing. And the most depressing thing is that no one in control seems to be listening.

Go for it, girlguiding association.

I doubt things are worse. It is just that now we are talking about it. On my better days I consider this the first step towards changing things. On normal days I despair. ...

Things have changed - back when I was at school, once I got off the school bus and into the house, I was just away from anyone else, unless I phoned them, and that wasn't encouraged because parents spent their whole time making dark comments about the costs (alongside comments about how we don't live in Battersea Power Station if you left a light on.) These days, girls can be harrassed via the various digital options. So although things may not be worse in some ways, it can be more difficult to hide away in the sanctuary of your room and know no one can get you there.

3 in 4 girls know another child who self harms or suffers from depression.

God, those 2 facts alone are enough to make me want to cry.
