Recent events have highlighted that sexual harassment is still a pressing problem. There is an urgent need for change in workplaces as well as social settings. In her research project, PhD fellow Bontu Lucie Guschke is studying sexual harassment in organizations. She is exploring the concept of sexual harassment, investigating how it is understood, made sense of, and negotiated between people in contemporary organizations. Her first, preliminary data shows that sexual harassment is not only widespread but also normalized. At the same time, people seem to have very different understandings of what sexual harassment means, where it starts and stops, and how they perceive it.
