Reconceptualizing Sexual Harassment, Again

Vicki Schultz, Yale Law School


Sexual harassment has always been more about sexism than it is about sex. Nearly twenty years ago, Vicki Schultz pioneered a new understanding of sexual harassment that recognized and theorized this empirical reality. The framework she developed in two articles published in the Yale Law Journal -Reconceptualizing Sexual Harassment and The Sanitized Workplace -still holds important lessons for today.
