Social Science Research on Lay Definitions of Sexual Harassment.
Frazier, Patricia A.; And Others
Journal of Social Issues, v51 n1 p21-37 Spr 1995
Critically reviews research on lay peoples' definition of sexual harassment, what behaviors are considered harassing, the effects of harasser status on perceptions of harassment, and gender differences in sexual harassment definitions. Results suggest more lay awareness of what constitutes harassing behavior, but less consistency in the effects of harasser status and gender differences in perceptions of harassing behaviors. (GR)
