Sexual and gender-based harassment in the workplace: a qualitative approach

Speakers: Sara Moreno & Vicent Borràs

Institution: Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Centre d’Estudis Sociològics sobre la Vida Quotidiana i el Treball

The main objective of the study is to carry out a qualitative approach to sexual and gender-based harassment in order to understand the perceptions, experiences and socially shared imaginaries that are part of the phenomenon in the workplace. Specifically, the aim is to analyze the sociocultural background that acts as a context and support for the existence and persistence of sexual and gender-based harassment beyond its quantification. In this sense, the specific objectives are to identify, describe and explain the social factors that make the phenomenon possible, as well as the elements of change and continuity that have occurred in recent years. Finally, the results obtained allow us to point out some recommendations on lines of action, as well as a set of suggestions for the design of a possible survey on male violence in the workplace.
