Journal of College Counseling, v1 n2 p99-110 Fall 1998
Examines influence of gender and race on perception of sexual harassment and on recommended punitive measures by college judicial boards for potential harasser. Significant gender-based differences were found in perception of an ambiguous sexual-harassment situation, with men tending to attribute greater responsibility to victim than did women. Results suggest possible shift in race relations among college students. (Author/JDM)
