Sexual Harassment on the Job

Sexual Harassment on the Job
How to avoid the working woman’s nightmare
Backhouse and Cohen
1981

Materials about sexual harassment are absolutely an important collection item in any modern library, both from the women’s studies angle as well as from a manager or employment perspective. This book dates from a time that it was difficult to even define sexual harassment in an employment setting. Forward thinking in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but not so much in the modern office setting. I think the strategies suggested are the most disturbing. Not sure I could fake nonchalance about having the boss in my kitchen stark naked.

One Response to Sexual Harassment on the Job

  • I think the naked boss was more anecdotal than recommendation. I think this book could have been very useful and possibly still could be. But, if there are newer editions or current equivalent material, that would probably be better.
