Pierce, Dennis – Community College Journal, 2018

Cooks, Leda M. – 1993
Sexual harassment has proven to be a difficult topic for men and women to discuss openly.

Shepela, Sharon Toffey; Levesque, Laurie L. – Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, 1998
Studied sexual harassment, including mild forms of harassment, experienced by male and female college students (n=369). Men and women were harassed with similar frequency, and more subtle forms of harassment were common. The very frequency of these subtle behaviors may explain why they are less likely to be labeled as harassment. (SLD)

Payne, Kay – 1991
