Overview


Bringing together fifty-seven contemporary popular and scholarly selections, Sexual Harassment: Issues and Answers clarifies and enriches readers' understanding of this complex and sensitive topic. Featuring a more comprehensive and in-depth treatment than specialized anthologies, it covers the nature of sexual harassment, various types of sexual harassment, and a wide range of current perspectives on the issue. The writings collected here represent a unique combination of political analysis, legal theory, philosophical debate, multicultural and international perspectives, regulatory documents, and Supreme Court case law. Chosen for their accessibility, concise presentation, and contribution to current debate, the selections examine the most compelling and perplexing questions raised by the media, the law, and academia on sexual harassment, including: What counts as a case of sexual harassment? Is it a matter of sexual attraction gone wrong? Is it a cultural expression of male domination over women? How persistent or severe must the conduct be? Can women sexually harass men? What is wrong with sexual harassment? Who is liable under the law for sexual harassment and how should they be held accountable? Should employers be liable for the harassing conduct of their employees? Ideal for courses in feminist philosophy, contemporary moral, political, and legal philosophy, and women's studies, Sexual Harassment: Issues and Answers is also essential reading for anyone interested in this critical issue.
