Confronting Sexual Harassment : The Law and Politics of Everyday Life, Hardback Book

Confronting Sexual Harassment : The Law and Politics of Everyday Life Hardback

Part of the Law, Justice and Power series

Description

Examining the relationship between law and social change in the context of employees' everyday problems with sexual harassment, this volume elaborates a framework for studying the role of law in everyday acts of resistance - what the author calls the legal consciousness of injustice.

The framework situates the analysis in the context of a specific social problem and its related legal domain.

It de-centres the law by accounting for the way that social movements, counter-movements, policy makers and powerful institutions frame the debate surrounding the social problem.

Drawing on frame analysis developed in social movement studies, this aspect of the approach specifically incorporates other schema and shows how law supports both oppositional and dominant interpretations of experience.

Following the stages of a dispute, the framework then examines the way that people use frames to make sense of their experiences.
