Abstract

The goal of this study was to explore differences between
male and female perceptions of sexual harassment,
depending on the sex and the reaction of the victim. The
participants in the study were 159 male and female students
from the University of Zagreb. They assessed a hypothetical
sexual harassment story on five 4-point Likert scales. The
significant differences between men and women were found
in their perception of the incident as well as differences
concerning the sex of the victim. Women generally assessed
the stories more negatively. The assessment was generally
more negative if the victim was female. Male and female
participants also differed in the kind of punishment they
would see as just for the perpetrator, and in the way they
would feel and act in such a situation.
