Reading Make sure you know what these words and expressions mean before you read the article: flirt sue suggestive photos dressed seductively moment she joined the company 13 years age. "It was being done just to provoke women," said Janin, 37. "When I said we didn't like it, they laughed at me." The company finally changed their policy when they agreed that the pictures could be a form of sexual harassment. Sexual harassment at work is a relatively new issue in France. French law now allows women to sue for sexual harassment, but it is limited to harassment by a superior of a subordinate. Typically, many cases do not make it to court. "It usually goes this way: the sexy calendars chat u p woman complains about her boss, and then she's fired," said one lawyer specialising in workplace harassment. Then she sues, and money, if awarded, is usually little or sometimes nothing at all. "Judges will say it's because the woman is dressed too seductively," he added. "Here we don't care about sexual harassment," declared another lawyer who, despite his bravado, asked that his name not be published. "Being macho is seen as a good thing in the office. Chatting up beautiful women is natural." FRENCH FLIRT AT WORK The engineering workshops at a well-known engine-maker based in Paris seem as clean and innocent as a church these days. The nude photographs and sexy calendars that used to be on some of the walls have been taken down or thrown away. For that, the men in the department mostly have one of their female colleagues to thank. Brigitte Janin, an aerodynamics engineer, said she started arguing against the suggestive photographs from the Read the text again and correct the statements below: 1. Sexual harassment only applies in cases of advances from a subordinate t o a superior. 2. Usually a woman is fired after she goes to court. 3 . M any judges blame a woman's behaviour. Discussion H o w far d o you agree with Brigitte Janin about the photos? Why? D o you think that a woman who dresses seductively should be prepared for unwanted sexual advances? Give a n example of 'seductive dress'. Can men be sexually harassed by women? Have you ever been in a difficult situation of this kind at work or college?

You can pay compliments to a female colleague but there is a fine line . . . . . being friendly and being overfamiliar. Discussion Work in pairs or small groups. Decide if the scenarios below describe a situation of sexual harassment. Should anything be done about each situation? If so, what? 1.Brian Lake often comes in to work with compliments. "Wow, I love your hair," he often says t o the women in the office, or "Nice skirt." Some women have noticed that he sometimes stares at their breasts when he talks to them. 2. Susan Bellford gives the guys massages in the office during breaks. "She's got good hands," they often say. A couple of the married men don't seem totally comfortable with it and one gay man doesn't seem t o like it at all, but accepts it so as not to 'make any waves.' 3. James Johnson touches bottoms - men's and women's. Where most people would simply smile, wink or give a pat on the back, James gives a pat on the bottom. "It's my way of being friendly," he says. What's interesting is that the men and women in the office seem to respect that. "James is James," says one woman. "He's just a playful guy. He doesn't mean anything by it." 4 . Ken Patrick tells dirty jokes in the office. "The people in the office love it," he says with a smile. Not everybody, it seems. Some of the women have been seen leaving the office as soon as he starts saying, "Hey, have you heard the one about the ..." 5 . Jennifer Stewart has a sexy body and is proud of it. She's been known to come to work in miniskirts and low-cut sweaters. "Why should I be ashamed of what God's given me?" she argues. " I d on't think it makes anyone feel uncomfortable. I haven't heard a single complaint from any of the men in the office!" 6. Bill Swanson calls all the men in the office 'mate' or 'my man'. He calls all the women 'sweetie pie' or 'babe'. 7. Shelly Layman is very tactile. She always puts her hand on the arm of the person she's talking to and always makes a point of making direct eye contact. Are you a tactile person? Do you touch people a lot? Has anyone ever objected to you touching them? How can you tell when someone does not want to be touched? Taboos and Issues ? Sexual harassment 10
