Abstract

This paper suggests that the current social issue/problem
concerning sexual harassment is exacerbated by some theoretical
problems found in sexual harassment policies. There are a
number of ethical considerations that need to be considered but
in particular the distinction between the social and the individual
is problematic in the liberal tradition. Practical problems in the
application of policies arise from this, both in the matter of public
accountability and the actual procedures of resolving instances of
sexual harassment. The paper is exploratory in nature rather than
prescriptive and does not intend to be comprehensive. Further
questions need to be formulated by ethicists, social scientists,
administrators, and those responsible for the implementation of
such policies before an adequate response to sexual harassment
will be possible.
