Abstract

In this study, we examined how racial factors influence college women's perceptions of sexual harassment. Specifically, we examined whether Black (N = 46) and White (N = 89) women perceive unsolicited sexual behavior between a Black woman and Black man differentfrom such behavior between a Black woman and a White man. The data suggest that sexual harassment between Black women and men are trivialized compared to sexual behavior between Black women and White men. The findings are interpreted with regard to the necessity of studying sexual harassment for women of color.
