SEXUAL HARASSMENT, INEQUALITY AND JUSTICE: THE CASE OF ADDIS ABABA UNIVERSITY [Abstract ID: 1102-08]
Sexual harassment is an outcome and expression of women‘s subordinate status in Ethiopia and is the result of the complex interplay of individual, social, cultural and environmental factors. Sexual harassment continues to be practiced and condoned in university setting, inflicting untold human suffering on victims/ survivors, families and communities.The available literature on sexual harassment in higher educational settings in Ethiopia mainly focused on its prevalence rate, associated factors for its occurrence and its impact on victims/ survivors, but failed to explore the meanings associated with sexual harassment and justice. This paper explores perspectives of survivors on “sexual harassment”, experiences of sexual harassment and their pathways to access ‘justice’.
