Project abstract

My research examines underlying mechanisms of sexual harassment and how to communicate about it in intervention programs (see 4.3.1.) as well as in media (see 4.3.2.). Sexual harassment is defined as unwanted sex-related behaviour that is appraised by the person who experience it as offensive, exceeding their resources, or threatening their well-being (Fitzgerald et al., 1997). Such behaviour generally fits into five categories: general sexist remarks and/or behaviour, inappropriate sexual advances, solicitation of sexual activity, rewarded sexual favours, or coerced sexual activity that that includes threat of punishment or sexual assault (Till, 1980).
