While sexual harassment of women in the workplace has been discussed for decades it is still a pervasive problem. This book looks at the history of that harassment from the 1600s (!) to the early 1990s, from long forgotten domestic servants in England of the 1600s to abused Japanese textile workers of 1900, to Anita Hill in 1991 America. Coverage is worldwide with emphasis on the United States and the period 1800 to the present. Harassment affects women from all walks of life; from unskilled to professional, those in traditionally female jobs, those in traditionally male jobs, and all the rest. Harassment occurs in factories, coal mines, construction sites, law offices, dental offices, government offices, Capitol Hill, and at every other work site. So bad was it in some factories that women took to carrying knives for self-protection. Women have put their economic existence on the line by striking over sexual harassment.

About the Author:

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.
