Female Supervisors More Likely to Be Sexually Harassed
Date:8/12/2009

ical analyses with in-depth interview material," Roscigno said. "This gives us the sense of what concretely is happening in these workplaces."

As in this study, previous research has shown that women in traditionally male-dominated fields are more likely be to harassed.

"It seems that these men are using sexual harassment as a way to put her in her place, make her feel uncomfortable, undermine her authority and sexualize her," Roscigno said. "Sex harassment seems to be a way that males in these environments level the power differential."

So what can be done about it?

McLaughlin recommends increasing and improving anti-sexual harassment education programs, which are sometimes not taken seriously by workers.

"A lot of times, they're perceived as kind of a joke and companies are doing this just to cover themselves from liability," she said. "It's important for companies to send the message that this is important."
