This chapter addresses the issue of how sexual harassment has traveled across national boundaries, in the case of France, drawing on a cross-national sociological study of how sexual harassment has been defined in the United States and France. It describes sexual harassment law in action, drawing primarily from twenty in-depth interviews, conducted in 1996 and 1997, with ten French and ten American lawyers who have worked in the area of sexual harassment. The argument is further informed by an additional forty in-depth interviews, conducted between 1995 and 2000, with French and American activists, public figures, human resource personnel, and union activists; legal analysis of statutes and jurisprudence in the two countries; content analysis of more than six hundred articles published in the American and French popular press from 1975 to 2000; and twenty-three brief telephone interviews conducted during the summer of 1997 with the human resource or personnel departments in French corporate workplaces.

Keywords:   sexual harassment, national boundaries, France, cross-national sociological study, United States
