Abstract:With respect to modeling, this study integrated findings from Latino cultural literature and past sexual harassment research into a culturally-salient model of the sexual harassment process---as experienced by Latina women. When surveying the 476 Latinas, the study assessed factors that the literature claimed to be particularly salient to Latinas' experiences, as well as those that are highly relevant to harassing situations in general. These factors included not only personal characteristics of Latina women, but also organizational contextual variables and attributes of the harasser. Path analyses and moderated regressions then demonstrated whether and how the factors affected Latina women's experiences of sexual harassment severity, which in turn influenced their job conditions and psychosomatic functioning. The paper concludes by comparing and contrasting findings with previous harassment research, and suggesting directions for future studies.
