Description

Sexual Harassment Law: History, Cases, and Practice is the only comprehensive textbook covering the origins and development of U.S. sexual harassment law in employment, education, housing, prisons, and the military. Beginning with the first sexual harassment cases in the early 1970s and extending through the contemporary #MeToo movement, this book examines statutory law, federal regulations, case law, and legal reasoning. In addition to careful analysis of relevant law, this textbook reviews topics such as street harassment, online harassment, extra-legal responses to misconduct, mandatory arbitration, and nondisclosure agreements.

The text also examines media coverage and public discourse on sexual harassment, from the 1991 Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings to the 2018 Blasey-Ford/Kavanaugh hearings. Focusing on how the intersections of gender, race, class, and citizenship status shape people s experience of sexual harassment, the book considers how institutional power enables sex-based harassment and creates barriers to legal relief. Accessible to law students as well as undergraduate students, the book considers the effectiveness of laws against sex-based harassment and reviews current proposals to strengthen these laws by expanding coverage and closing loopholes.
