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 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 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

Key messages This paper offers reflections on the role of online feminist activism against sexual violence. It explores the limits of institutional mechanisms in responding to sexual violence in the academe. It considers the challenges and possibilities of alternative forms of feminist activism to prevailing responses to gender-based violence. Introduction Starting in 2019, a moment of unprecedented public attention to sexual harassment and violence is underway, generated by the recent and widespread breaking of silence by victims/survivors, and
Moral order is disturbed by criminal events. However, in a secularized and networked society a common moral ground is increasingly hard to find.
People feel confused about the bigger issues of our time such as crime, anti-social behaviour, Islamist radicalism, sexual harassment and populism. Traditionally, issues around morality have been neglected by criminologists.
Through theory, case studies and discussion, this book sheds a new and topical light on these concerns. Using the moral perspective, Boutellier bridges the gap between people’s emotional opinions on crime, and criminologists’ rationalized answers to questions of crime and security.
Written by leading experts in the field, this timely collection highlights current strategies and thinking in relation to prevention of sexual violence and critically considers the limitations of these frameworks.
Combining psychological, criminological, sociological and legal perspectives, it explores academic, practitioner and survivor points of view. It addresses broad themes, from cultures of sexual harassment to the role of media in oversexualising women and girls, as well as specific issues including violence against children and older people.
For researchers, practitioners and students alike, this is an invaluable resource that maps new approaches for practice and prevention.
Disabled people report high levels of harassment worldwide, often based on intersectional characteristics such as race, gender and age. However, while #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter have highlighted ongoing experiences of sexual and racial harassment, disability harassment has received little attention.
This book focuses on legal measures to combat disability harassment at work. It sets disability harassment in its international context, including its human rights framework, and confronts the lack of empirical information by evaluating the Irish legal framework in practice.
It explores the capacity of the law to address intersectional harassment, particularly that faced by disabled women, and outlines the barriers to effective legal solutions.
Until recently, higher education in the UK has largely failed to recognise gender-based violence (GBV) on campus, but following the UK government task force set up in 2015, universities are becoming more aware of the issue. And recent cases in the media about the sexualised abuse of power in institutions such as universities, Parliament and Hollywood highlight the prevalence and damaging impact of GBV.
In this book, academics and practitioners provide the first in-depth overview of research and practice in GBV in universities. They set out the international context of ideologies, politics and institutional structures that underlie responses to GBV in elsewhere in Europe, in the US, and in Australia, and consider the implications of implementing related policy and practice.
Presenting examples of innovative British approaches to engagement with the issue, the book also considers UK, EU and UN legislation to give an international perspective, making it of direct use to discussions of ‘what works’ in preventing GBV.
