Sex, Gender, and Engineering: Harassment at Work and in School
This book presents a timely consideration of sexual harassment in engineering by putting it in context with current events in the US: #MeToo, recent presidential administrations, the flurry of media and public interest in recent prominent harassment cases, and the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides a window into the experience of individual engineers, students, and faculty. For engineering practitioners, this book presents effective strategies for reducing sexual harassment that can be implemented in a wide range of settings. Researchers will appreciate its extensive review of the literature, including measurement scales, impacts of harassment, and identification of particularly vulnerable populations. This book also outlines where future research is needed in this regard.
