Harassment, sexual

  • Mary E. Hunt


Women have been sexually harassed in the field of religious studies, as in most other fields, since they arrived on the scene. Hair-raising stories of women being propositioned at conferences, during job interviews, and on the job are all too common, the result of unequal power dynamics between women and men in a sexist culture. Lawsuits have been filed, but for the most part these indignities were borne quietly by the women for fear of sullying their reputations, a misplacement of blame.
