Sex Harassment in Schools: The Politics of Law, Power, Sexuality, and Speech.
Baez, Benjamin
Educational Theory, v51 n1 p45-62 Win 2001
Uses a 1994 lawsuit on behalf of a student being sexually harassed by a classmate, to examine discourse on sexual harassment, suggesting that language is constitutive of sexual norms; discussing prevailing notions of gender, sexuality, and power in schools; and contending that the predominant framework for conceptualizing sexism gives legal representatives authority to define and police what constitutes appropriate sexuality.
