What factors do sexual harassment, rape, & the abuse of women have in common? - Sexual harassment, rape, & the abuse of women all involve violence & power inequalities; they make many women silent, & they lead to victim-blaming & trivializing of the issues; all are related to gender-role socialization. 2. Be familiar with what constitutes sexual harassment; Differentiate between the kinds of sexual harassment. - Involves “deliberate or repeated comments, gestures, or physical contacts of a sexual nature that are unwanted by the recipient” - Quid pro quo harassment – something for something - Hostile environment – intimidating & offensive atmosphere - Sexual harassment is a feminist issue, & it occurs quite often in academia & in the workplace 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
