TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Students at Indiana State University are using Women's History Month to study the history of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Students held workshops Wednesday morning at Cunningham Memorial Library.

One of the presentations discussed the "Me Too" movement.

One student we talked with said it's important to study the history of sexual assault so history doesn't repeat itself.

"How I can be more proactive toward the community. I think sometimes we lack to understand what we can actually do for women and I think for everyone that's sitting out there...it's important that they know what they can do for women just in case they come across a victim or someone who does need help and doesn't know their options," student Fariha Manir said.

ISU plans to hold other events this week to commemorate Women's History Month.
