This chapter describes the efforts of feminist lawyers and academics around the world to influence perceptions and legal definitions of sexual harassment within their own legal cultures. The following sections introduce such developments as they have recently been formulated and successfully legislated in Israel. The author illustrates how an exploration of U.S. sexual harassment law and feminist theory enabled a new conceptualization, befitting the needs, features, and circumstances of Israeli society and law. Starting with a brief analysis of some successes and limits in the development of U.S. sexual harassment doctrine, the chapter uses the recent Israeli sexual harassment law to show how dialogue between U.S. and Israeli feminists brought about Israel's creative legal treatment of sexual harassment.

Keywords:   feminist lawyers, academics, legal definitions, sexual harassment, legal cultures, Israel, feminist theory, Israeli society, creative legal treatment
