Perspectives from the Nordic Region

EPDF and EPUB available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence.

The #MeToo movement sparked many debates and increased the demand for more problematized perspectives on the issue of sexual harassment.

This book opens for new understandings of sexual harassment by bringing researchers, writers, and policymakers in the Nordic region into dialogue in an ambitious volume. It asks what role juridical frameworks can and should play in prevention and raises questions about how the image of Nordic states – as gender equal, colour blind and with strong welfare – affects the work against sexual harassment in the region.

Re-imagining definitions of justice, violence, exploitation and work, this book offers knowledge of immediate importance for everyone working to prevent sexual harassment, through research, policy making, or in everyday practice.

#MeToo happened. But we don’t really want to start there, because #MeToo happened in 2017 while sexual harassment has been around for way longer than that. However, as a direct consequence of #MeToo we found ourselves engaged in an extensive demand for knowledge on sexual harassment. Since 2017, we have reviewed the majority of the research in this field from the Nordic region, and a great deal of the existing international literature, as well as examining policy making at the Nordic and European levels ( Simonsson, 2021 ; Svensson, 2021 ; Bondestam and

Introduction Sexual harassment has become a high-profile issue in recent years across a range of cultural contexts, including through the global rise of the #MeToo movement and the Everyday Sexism project. The UK (and elsewhere) has seen regular media coverage of high-profile cases of sexual harassment and other forms of gender violence across many different sectors (organized sport; organized religion; social and child welfare services and the entertainment industry, to name just a few) ( Anitha and Lewis, 2018 , p 5), as well as the shocking rape and

these situations. In the past five years, gendering as well as sexual insults and harassment in the public space have been frequently discussed themes in both traditional media and on Finnish social media. In the aftermath of the feminist #MeToo movement, experiences of harassment have become more visible and recognised. Importantly, the key subjects in these societal, mediated debates have been young women: both as targets of sexual harassment and as those who have voiced criticism and shown resistance (see also Dahl, 2014 ; Aaltonen, 2017 ; Honkatukia et al

Key messages Conservatives are less likely than liberals to perceive and label both ambiguous and unambiguous workplace scenarios as sexual harassment. Conservative women report significantly fewer instances of sexual harassment and gender discrimination than liberal women. These findings have broad implications for policy support and political attitudes about gender discrimination and harassment. Introduction Allegations of sexual misconduct among prominent media figures and politicians have sparked conversations about sexual harassment in the US

Key messages Emerging evidence shows that sexual harassment is endemic in the music industry. Live music is a transgressive space. Kelly’s conducive context framework highlights how characteristics of live music spaces (for example, gender inequalities, unregulated work environment, lack of policies) and the cultural context within the music industry facilitate sexual harassment. Introduction The emergent literature documenting sexual harassment and sexualised violence within the music industry in addition to stakeholder engagement, media

Key messages Working students experienced frequent sexual harassment, and occasionally were treated as prostitutes. They reported confusion and minimising; some reported asking for the help of colleagues or their employer, but no one made a formal complaint. They experienced humiliation but retained a strong sense of their dignity as workers, which counts as a form of coping and resistance. Forty years ago, Catharine MacKinnon (1979) contended that sexual harassment (SH) was an expression of male power over women resulting from women’s low status

Key messages • Rates and experiences of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and sexual violence of early-career academics in Ireland are unknown. • Our data suggest that these issues are more prevalent than commonly believed. • Early-career academics’ experiences of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and sexual violence should be a focus of future research in order to raise awareness of such issues and for more resources to be developed to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and violence in higher education in Ireland. Introduction In

Key messages Sexual harassment prevalence rates are low and with a high variability. University staff members experience more sexual harassment than students. It would be advisable to supplement these quantitative studies with new qualitative studies to better understand the results obtained. Introduction The current study analyses the prevalence of sexual harassment among staff and undergraduate students at a Spanish public university. It is important to understand the magnitude of this problem among all members of university communities
