Book Description

Dec 28 2000
Bringing together fifty-seven contemporary popular and scholarly selections, Sexual Harassment: Issues and Answers clarifies and enriches readers' understanding of this complex and sensitive topic. Featuring a more comprehensive and in-depth treatment than specialized anthologies, it covers the nature of sexual harassment, various types of sexual harassment, and a wide range of current perspectives on the issue. The writings collected here represent a unique combination of political analysis, legal theory, philosophical debate, multicultural and international perspectives, regulatory documents, and Supreme Court case law. Chosen for their accessibility, concise presentation, and contribution to current debate, the selections examine the most compelling and perplexing questions raised by the media, the law, and academia on sexual harassment. Ideal for courses in feminist philosophy, contemporary moral, political, and legal philosophy, and women's studies, Sexual Harassment: Issues and Answers is also essential reading for anyone interested in this critical issue.

Review

(1st review takes up two fields) "LeMoncheck and Sterba's anthology on sexual harassment is a 'must read' for anyone who thinks that they understand this crucial issue. The authors who contributed to Sexual Harassment: Issues and Answers raise many provocative questions about this issue, but none of them raises a question more challenging than the one LeMoncheck and Sterba themselves ask: namely, 'Whose decisions count in answering the important questions raised by sexual harassment?' Clearly, as LeMoncheck and Sterba suggest, in the multicultural and international world which we all populate, the decisions should not rest exclusively in the hands of affluent, Anglo-European, heterosexual men. Women, lesbian and heterosexual, light- and dark-skinned, poor and rich, in developed and developing nations, need to be the primary decision makers when it comes to setting public policies on sexual harassment.

In compiling this creative and comprehensive anthology, LeMoncheck and Sterba have performed a service not only for philosophers, academicians, and business executives, but also for social activists, workers, students, and the public in general. They should be applauded for successfully bridging the gap between theory and practice in their concerted effort to help eliminate one of the major causes for the continuation of gender-based inequalities."--Rosemarie Tong, Department of Philosophy, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
