Directions: Read the following vignettes. Decide whether each is an example of sexual harassment or not and describe why you think the way you do. Then, switch the gender of the people involved and describe whether or not this changes your view on whether or not it is an example of sexual harassment. There are no “right” answers, but points will be awarded for reasoning so be sure to support your opinions. Discussions will take place in groups. Only submit one paper per group.

Appalled that this photo could be displayed at a university, Chris complains to the head of the department.
