Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sexual discrimination and sexual harassment have been receiving increasing attention. Women who are subject to this harassment often find themselves under severe psychiatric stress. Because there is an increased economic, as well as personal, need to work, women often find themselves trapped in a very stressful situation. The forensic psychiatrist working in this area must be aware of the various legal issues involved as well as of the different types of psychiatric consequences of sexual discrimination and harassment.
