College Students' Experiences and Perceptions of Harassment on Campus: An Exploration of Gender Differences
Reason, Robert D.; Rankin, Susan R.
College Student Affairs Journal, v26 n1 p7-29 Fall 2006
Using a campus climate assessment instrument developed by Rankin (1998), we surveyed students (N = 7,347) from 10 campuses to explore the different experiences with harassment and campus climates reported by men and women. Both men and women reported experiencing harassment, although women experienced harassment at statistically significantly higher rates than men. Women reported higher rates of sexual harassment, while men reported higher rates of harassment based upon sexuality. These findings are understood, and implications are provided, using a lens of power and privilege.
