The cause of harassment is important
What are the causes of sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment has primarily nothing to do with initiation or sexuality. It also has nothing to do with the subjective attractiveness of a harassed person. In the work context, it is usually related to the exercise of power and hierarchies. Above all, two causes or intentions can be distinguished: On the one hand, hierarchical working relationships are used to sexually harass and to demonstrate one's own power. This reinforces existing inequalities. Sexual harassment is often a means of eliminating competition or undermining the authority of a superior, for example.
