Ambivalence and Stereotypes Cause Sexual Harassment: A Theory with Implications for Organizational Change.
Fiske, Susan T.; Glick, Peter
Journal of Social Issues, v51 n1 p97-115 Spr 1995
Theorizes that workplace sexual harassment results from the complex interplay of ambivalent motives and gender stereotyping of women and jobs. It argues that ambivalence combines hostile and "benevolent" sexist motives based on paternalism, gender differentiation, and heterosexuality and that organizational context can encourage or discourage the cognitive-motivational dimensions that underlie sexual harassment.
