This chapter examines research and theoretical perspectives about the work-life interface and sexual harassment in the workplace. Multiple roles and unwanted social and sexual experiences at work are considered from feminist multicultural and organizational perspectives. The chapter focuses on adaptive and contextual factors when considering how women experience and navigate the work-life interface, and how they respond to sexual harassment. In the context of the review, a new meta-analysis of the relationship between sexual harassment and racial/ethnic harassment and a new quantitative review of sexual harassment measurement are presented. The chapter discusses organizational remedies for sexual harassment in the workplace and strategies for addressing work-family conflict and sexual harassment at the individual level, and presents recommendations for future research.

Keywords: Multiple roles; sexual harassment; work-family conflict; workplace harassment; coping; workplace stress; prevention and intervention; outcomes; antecedents; racial/ethnic harassment
