Overview

Cheryl Gomez-Preston was a respected Detroit policewoman who loved and needed her job, but sexual harassment destroyed her career and almost her life. She endured the worst kind of abuse by her coworkers and nearly lose her sanity trying to fight for her rights and self-esteem. Her harrowing experiences on the job and in the courts brought her to the depths of despair, but perseverance led her to a new consciousness and purpose. Cheryl Gomez-Preston is one of the few women in the United States who have taken a sexual harassment case to court and gone through the legal system successfully. In 1987 she was awarded a $1.2 million settlement in one of the largest sexual harassment verdicts ever handed down. As a result, she is committed to helping others who may be victims of this supposedly nonviolent crime. In 1988 Cheryl Gomez-Preston founded the Association for the Sexually Harassed, a nonprofit organization through which she counsels and educates not only victims, but also corporations and universities, and men as well as women. Additionally, she has become a well-respected expert witness and testifies all over the nation in court cases involving this problem. She is also a much-in-demand lecturer. This book is an all-inclusive, practical guide to dealing with sexual harassment not only in the workplace but also within the legal system. When No Means No defines sexual harassment, shows where it occurs, and profiles a typical harasser and victim. The book provides step-by-step instructions on exactly what you should do if you are being sexually harassed and suggestions for how to prevent losing your job because of it, how to get a member of the opposite sex to stop harassing you, advice on what you should do if you've already turned to the wrong people for help, and how to bring a successful suit to court. it also educates employers on proper policies in the workplace and describes how children and teenagers often become unwitting victims and perpetrators.

The founder of the Association of the Sexually Harassed defines sexual harassment, shows where it occurs, profiles a typical harasser and victim, provides step-by-step advice on what to do if one is harassed, educates employers on proper policies in the workplace, and tells when legal action should be taken.
