The Law of Sexual Harassment: A Critique
This book examines the question of whether the law about sexual harassment is morally justified, and argues that it is not. Among the specific conclusions reached in the book are that the law about sexual harassment does not provide a workable criterion of demarcation between sexual harassment and other sexual interaction, that it is in an unavoidable conflict with the commitment to freedom of speech, and that the subsumption of sexual harassment under the notion of sex discrimination (which is at the core of the law) is unwarranted. The book also shows that the structure of the sexual harassment law makes it possible for the state to control the individual conduct in a way that bypasses the traditions that otherwise govern its relationships with its citizens.
