I just think it all comes down to how the girl behaves as to how she is treated: sexual harassment survival behaviours and workplace thinking in rural Australia

Skye Saunders, Patricia EASTEAL

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

We explore the way that rural women and employers perceive and react to harassing behaviour in their isolated workplaces including: their thoughts on the reactions/responses of women in the workplace to harassing behaviours ('She just keeps asking for it' ); their feelings of responsibility ('Saying "no" makes me feel guilty'); their minimizing ('If you make a fuss you are just a big idiot'); and their denial. We find that there are some differences in 'survival' behaviours and workplace thinking depending upon the occupation, degree of rurality and gender ratios of the workplace but the most concerning difference is that between employers and employees and conclude that there is a need to educate management and workers.
