The paper investigates the differences between men and women as it relates to sexual harassment. The literature indicates that there are definite differences related to the reporting of sexual harassment as it relates to men and women. The literature suggests that the perceptions of gender roles play a major part in determining whether or not victims (male or female) report sexual harassment. The paper examines how women who report harassment are often viewed as troublemakers and men who report harassment are viewed as effeminate.
