A clean and healthy sport for the 3rd millennium

E-mail Print

This paper separates sexual harassment and abuse, but defines them as the middle and extreme points along a continuum toward sexual abuse. She lists behaviours to exemplify the meaning of each term. Whilst this conceptualisation of behaviours separates each type it is important to stress again that individual victims may experience them in an undifferentiated way: indeed, the nuances of definitional distinctions are completely irrelevant to the victim at the time of [her] experience.

According to this work: There is no universally accepted definition of sexual harassment. Even though such behaviour may be defined objectively it is important to recognise that it is experienced subjectively thus the personal and psychological impact of the same behaviour may be vastly different depending on the individual child’s or female athlete’s background and perceptions.
