“Who’s Harassing Whom”
Marianne M. Jennings
Marianne M. Jennings article “Who’s Harassing Whom?” opens up with condemning the women who file sexual harassment cases against men in the work place. She believes that these women have made women as a whole seem incapable of dealing with sexual harassment. They have forced companies to take even more precautions against sexual harassment for fear of being taken to court. Such precautions include “Sensitivity Training” where Jennings claims “who is harassing whom when I am forced to reveal my personal feelings to coworkers whom I don’t even exchange recipes.” In her article Jennings also presents a good point for all to consider. “How innocent are the victims of harassment anyway?” On their own accord, women make a decision to stay in a harassing environment. They then file suit for millions. As result men no longer feel comfortable mentoring female employees because they fear a “career-derailing investigation.” They feel as thought they cannot risk forming any type of relationship with female workers. Jennings’ article expertly makes a reader see how these women have hindered a female’s chances of truly excelling in the workplace.
