The Law of Sexual Harassment

Author: Mane Hajdin
Publisher: Susquehanna University Press
ISBN: 1575910586
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Law

"This book examines the question of whether the law about sexual harassment is morally justified, and argues that it is not. While the author has approached that examination as a professional philosopher, the book does not presuppose that its readers belong to any particular academic discipline: it is intended to be of interest to scholars in philosophy, political science, and jurisprudence, but also accessible to other educated readers. No previous familiarity with the law of sexual harassment is assumed, other than the general knowledge that any casual reader of newspapers is bound to have. The book is devoted to arguments that are addressed to all open-minded readers who wish to think about the topic critically."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Sexual Harassment

Author: Linda LeMoncheck
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
ISBN: 9780585116983
Release Date: 2000-01-01
Genre: Philosophy

The question of what constitutes sexual harassment—from suggestive remarks to outright threats, from off-color jokes to lewd posters on office walls—is contentious, as is the question of how to address sexual harassment. Do all instances of sexual harassment constitute sex discrimination? Are some instances merely sexual attraction gone wrong? Do social policies aimed at eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace violate freedom of expression or do they make working relationships possible between women and men? In this uncompromising yet respectful debate, two philosophers of widely divergent views present clear arguments and then respond directly to each other's reasoning. LeMonchek argues for a feminist perspective on sexual harassment that is sensitive to the politics of gender. Hajdin contends that this perspective is both morally confusing and legally problematic, and that sexual harassment can be better addressed by traditional moral and legal categories.

The Women s Movement Against Sexual Harassment

Author: Carrie N. Baker
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9780521879354
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Law

This book recounts the story of how a diverse social movement placed sexual harassment on the public agenda in the 1970s and 1980s. The collaboration of women from varying racial, economic, and geographic backgrounds strengthened the movement by representing the experiences and perspectives of a broad range of women, and incorporating their resources and strategies for social change. Black women; middle-class feminists; women breaking into construction, coal mining, and other non-traditional occupations; and women in pink-collar and working-class white-collar jobs all helped to convince governments to adopt public policies against sexual harassment in the United States. Based on interviews and original research, this book shows how the movement against sexual harassment fundamentally changed American life in ways that continue to advance women's opportunities today.

What Is Sexual Harassment

Author: Abigail Saguy
Publisher: Univ of California Press
ISBN: 0520936973
Release Date: 2003-08-13
Genre: Social Science

In France, a common notion is that the shared interests of graduate students and their professors could lead to intimate sexual relations, and that regulations curtailing those relationships would be both futile and counterproductive. By contrast, many universities and corporations in the United States prohibit sexual relationships across hierarchical lines and sometimes among coworkers, arguing that these liaisons should have no place in the workplace. In this age of globalization, how do cultural and legal nuances translate? And when they differ, how are their subtleties and complexities understood? In comparing how sexual harassment—a concept that first emerged in 1975—has been defined differently in France and the United States, Abigail Saguy explores not only the social problem of sexual harassment but also the broader cultural concerns of cross-national differences and similarities.
