Challenging TimesPeople and Place
Macmillan, 208 pages, $12.95

This book, published in 1979, was the first book about sexual harassment to be published in Canada, and the second in North America.  Quotation from the inside flap:

If you thought women have finally become more accepted as real people with readier access to the conclaves of corporate power, read this book - you'll think again. Using statistical studies, interviews with executives and personnel managers, case studies, historical records, and court cases, Constance Backhouse and Leah Cohen show how pervasive sexual harassment is in the workplace.

The authors provide us with a balanced and incisive understanding of what goes on. They also recommend ways to combat sexual harassment. Since this subject has till now been unexplored, avoided, and rife with myths and misinformation, this book is all the more important to our society.
