Sexual harassment of working women has been widely practiced and systematically ignored. Menas control over womenas jobs has often made coerced sexual relations the price of womenas material survival. Considered trivial or personal, or natural and inevitable, sexual harassment has become a social institution. MacKinnon offers here a attempt to understand sexual harassment as a pervasive social problem and to present a legal argument that it is discrimination based on sex. Beginning with an analysis of victims' experiences, she then examines sex discrimination doctrine as a whole, both for its potential in prohibiting sexual harassment and for its limitations.Sexual harassment of working women has been widely practiced and systematically ignored.
