Who s harassing whom

“Who’s Harassing Whom”

Marianne M. Jennings


Summary

Summary

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.

    “Dear sisters, we have met the enemy and she is us.”


P a thos

Pathos

  • Humor

  • “My employer trusts me with budgeting, lobbying, fund-raising and shaping the minds of the next generation, but is forced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the courts to conclude that I can’t handle the advances of knuckleheads.”


Who s harassing whom

  • “The female arm has an appendage created for dealing with cads. Women in the 1940s used said appendage quite effectively to administer a slap in the face and thereby deter drunken sailors. And yet working women today can’t handle a boor in wing tips and bifocals without the help of the Supreme Court?”

  • “The guys at the Ford plant were interested in “gender stratification”? Sounds to me like they were just after a roll in the hay.”


Who s harassing whom

  • Anger

  • “I resent the women who bring sexual harassment suits and convince courts that we are as helpless as Melanie Wilkes in “Gone With the Wind.”

  • “Women define what is repulsive, stay in it and then file and win multimillion-dollar verdicts, which in many cases exceed the amounts awarded to children crippled in horrific accidents.


Who s harassing whom

  • Frustration

  • “But who’s harassing whom when I’m forced to attend “sensitivity training” seminars and reveal my personal feelings to coworkers with whom I don’t even exchange recipes?”

  • “Mentoring, which I had from decent and honorable men and without which I would not have survived 30 years ago, is a lost art. Men who hold the keys and skills for advancement hesitate to involve themselves in one-on-one counseling of female employees. Men fear closing the office door during meetings with women.”


Ethos

Ethos

  • Jennings brings her character/ethics to be a very self reliant and independent person

  • “But what I resent more than the lack of attention is the assumption underlying the rules and decisions governing sexual harassment: that I am incapable of handling unwanted sexual suggestion.”


Who s harassing whom

  • Jennings tells an anecdote about workers at the Ford company not wanting to leave their job even though they were sexually harassed.

  • She creates an impersonal aura about herself by her response because of her ethics centered around self reliance.


Who s harassing whom

  • “But who's harassing whom when I am forced to attend ‘sensitivity training’ seminars and reveal my personal feeling to coworkers who I would not even trade recipes with?”

  • This example shows independence impersonal feelings.

  • -Page 2, paragraph 2

CrossoverFun

  • “Men who hold the keys and skills for advancement hesitate to involve themselves in one-on-one counseling of female employees.”

  • -Page 3, paragraph two
