Cultural historian Kerry Segrave is the author of dozens of books on such topics as drive-in theaters, lie detectors, jukeboxes, smoking, shoplifting and ticket-scalping. He lives in British Columbia.From Library Journal:
Sexual harassment on the job isn't new or uniquely American, as shown by this heavily referenced history of the sexual harassment, rape, and even murder of working women around the world. In detailed accounts grouped in chapters on indentured servants, serfs and slaves, domestic servants, industrial workers, strikes and trade unions, blue-collar workers, clerical workers, serving and nurturing workers (e.g., waitresses and nurses), professional women, political men, and surveys and laws, Segrave (Women Serial and Mass Murderers: A Worldwide Reference, 1580 Through 1990, McFarland, 1992) illustrates near-universal contradictory assumptions that work corrupts good women, that only corrupt women work and they deserve what happens to them, and that working women corrupt men." In the introduction, Segrave states, "Sexual harassment has nothing whatsoever to do with libido and lust. It has everything to do with exploiting, objectifying, and dominating women." This book is not pretty reading, and it offers no solutions to the problem. But in its wealth of detail it remains a solid source for reference and women's studies collections.
