Introductory chapter of the book puts the phenomenon of sexual harassment and harassment based on gender into context of theories of justice and theoretical gender approachs towards social inequalities. The author further focuses on gender discrimination on labour market and on issue of unequal distribution of symbolic power between men and women. The sexual harassment is thus analyzed in the context of broader institutionalized connections which legitimize and enable its existence in society. The author conceptualizes the phenomenon of sexual harassment as a factor that preserves existing status quo of gender relationships as it confirms economic inequalities between men and women on the one hand and symbolic domination of men over women on the other.
