At the workplace about “71% of women do not tell about sexual harassment” (Gale). More than half of the population of women have not told anyone about them getting sexually harassed, they become too worried about the embarrassment that they could potentially face or possibly cause more problems and anger from their attacker. In the workplace the “women reporting sexual harassment end up losing their jobs” (Gretchen Carlson 8:06). This causes most women to become too scared to report sexual harassment in their workplace because the outcome could turn into them losing their job. Often times when women report sexual harassment at work people usually do not believe them so they get fired for what people think considered lying or dramatic.
Also, if a woman initiates the sexual actions but pulls away, men can claim that she “teased” him and then did not commit and then if they do not back off, the woman claim it as harassment. Women can sometimes take small things out of proportion but that is no excuse for not taking no for an
It is only ironic that some of this commercials conclude with the with the catch phrase “more than just a piece of meat”. As Julie M. Stankiewics and Francis Roselly state "Research has shown that violence against women is a serious public health and human rights concern (World Health Organization 2000) and that the simultaneous presentation of women as sex objects and victims in various forms of media increases acceptance of violence against women”(Stankiewics, Roselly). The depiction of women as sexual objects helps society justify acts of violence. I cannot count the amount of time somebody has said “well she was asking for it” when referring to a rape victim. This logic leads me to think that somehow some people think it is okay to physically assault someone as long as they are wearing sexually “provocative” clothes.
They blame it on the youthfulness and immaturity of the boys, but in reality, the schools are the ones telling the boys this, and we see examples of all ages in their society seeing women as sexual objects and inferiors. In conclusion, while focusing on differences in the treatment of the genders, we can see that women are objectified
It creates a very hostile environment for all employees who have been subjected to it. Throughout this essay, I explained harassment in two different ways, the first being possible harassment through workplace attire in a sexually charged environment and then wrongfully accused harassment. Neither of which is for the ‘greater good” according to the utilitarian theory, one who harasses another in any instance is for their benefit not for the immediate group. Harassment at any time should not be an acceptable practice, and one should report it when it happens. There are many seminars, onsite and online training opportunities one can take advantage of to learn about the types of harassment and the rules of in office relationships.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Sexual harassment in the workplace is an issue that affects many due to the high rise in reported and unreported cases. Both men and women across the U.S and worldwide are being affected directly and indirectly. Certain measures are needed to prevent sexual harassment from arising in the workplace, and it is only through an effective education that this will be achieved. According to the National Women 's Law Center (2000), “Harassment can poison the work atmosphere and negatively impact other workers who are not themselves harassed. In fact, decreased work group productivity was the largest single cost to the government in its survey of harassment.” The purpose of this paper is to describe an example of
Even women's own kind can treat them like slaves, like they're animals, and people have to admit it for each sides have their own faults. Women who are dressed like hookers can easily grab attention. Women who go out partying with strangers can be violated. Women, at least like men, think that the whole world is open-minded as they are. Women who go out of the country for a job and a higher salary, some are abused, some are raped, some are even threatened, and some die eventually because of blood loss and such tragedies Thus, the implementation of the anti-violation against women and their children act (programs and services) is relevant to our society today since abuses and violence against women have consequences which are across-the-board and this also affect the children.
Since there is no clear definition of what constitutes sexual harassment, there is a tendency to confuse sexual harassment in the workplace with insensitive comments. This attitude affects whether an act is considered to be sexual harassment in the workplace and how to deal with it. Sexual harassment in the workplace is a gender issue. Victims of sexual harassment are predominantly women, who are usually in a low-ranking position, and work under the supervision of, or are dependent on the harassers. Those who commit sexual harassment and their victims often know each other well.
One respondent said: ‘In my opinion the harassers have some psychological issues. They resort to this activity to hide their own insecurities and weaknesses as well as their sexual and mental frustrations or to show their dominancy.” From these responses it becomes evident that there are various reasons why boys resort to such hideous actions. They can be psychological or social reasons. Many a times lack of attention from parents can lead a person to get involved in particular activities just in order to gain others attention. Many boys as suggested by one respondent indulge in this activity just to make an influence upon their friends or because of peer pressure to prove that they are dominant and
