Abstract:Study 2 included ninety-one African American women who were claimants from a class-action lawsuit filed against a large financial institution; all women had been determined to have experienced sexual harassment. Multiple hierarchical linear regressions and dominance analyses were conducted to examine the relative contribution of racial harassment for psychological and health-related outcomes. Regression analyses indicated that racial harassment significantly increased the amount of variance accounted for regarding life satisfaction, clinical symptoms, and PTSD symptoms. Dominance analyses also confirmed that of the variance explained, racial harassment was a strong predictor for these three outcomes.
