About This Guide

The basic definition of sexual harassment comes from the United Stated Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC): "Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment." This Research Guide will assist you in finding information about the legal, historical, psychological and social aspects of sexual harassment.
