Transcript SEXUAL HARASSMENT ON THE JOB There are experiences that are common to a class of people, but because of the shame associated with the experiences they remain personal traumas. Sexual harassment on the job is one such ordeal experienced by what appears to be a significant majority of working women. It is an issue that women have only begun to speak about, and with great reluctancy. Instead of sexual harassment at the workplace being an issue of discrimination against women, the lack of communication renders the occurrence to something that happened to "me". Recent studies and surveys are beginning to indicate that women are victims of sexual harassment in the workplace in percentages so large as to make it the rule, not the exception. Eighty-eight percent of the 9,000 Redbook respondents in a recent questionnaire on the issue confirmed secual harassment on the job to be an almost universal experience for women who rork. Other issues such as rape, wife-beating and abortion have been clouded by misplaced guilt. This is true of sexual harassment at work. Th^ victim is led to believe that somehow she brought the experience on herself and is totally responsible for her situation. The fact is that women of all ages, races and sizes are experiencing this harassment which may take the form of verbal and/or physical abuse, to the point of rape in some cases. It amounts to economic blackmail as a woman must risk the loss of her job or chance for advancement if she speaks up. Recent court decisions on the matter have been mixed, leaving the women's rights in this area vague and unclear. What is needed is definitive litigation around a test case. (Continued on next page)
