Sexual harassment is the sexualization of an otherwise nonsexual relationship. Two forms of harassment have been defined by the EEOC Policy Guidelines on Current Issues of Sexual Harassment: 1) quid pro quo harassment, in which submission to such conduct is a term or condition of an individual’s employment or the rejection of such conduct affects the individual’s employment decisions; and 2) environmental harassment, in which the conduct unreasonably interferes with a person’s work or creates a hostile, intimidating, and offensive work environment (EEOC guidelines). Sexual harassment is not about sex, it is a tool of power and domination.
