Stalking is a nuanced crime that can affect victims of all backgrounds. With the glamorization of these behaviors, victims of stalking are often left feeling like they will not be believed or turned away from services.
It is essential to understand the context of stalking since many of the behaviors may appear harmless or benign. Those who choose to stalk use tactics of fear and uncertainty to harass further, monitor, intimidate, and coerce victims.
