Marin, Amy J.; Guadagno, Rosanna E.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v41 n11-12 p921-40 Dec 1999
Used sexual harassment scenarios to examine the effects of labeling and reporting on college students' perceptions of sexual harassment victims. In scenarios where women labeled the incident harassment, students attributed greater blame to them, considering them less trustworthy and less feminine. In scenarios where women reported harassment, they were labeled higher in assertiveness but considered less trustworthy and less feminine. (SM)
