HERNANDEZ HERRERA, Claudia Alejandra; JIMENEZ GARCIA, Martha  and  GUADARRAMA TAPIA, Eduardo. Female students' perceptions of sexual harassment at two higher education institutions. Rev. educ. sup [online]. 2015, vol.44, n.176, pp.63-82. ISSN 0185-2760.

This article analyzes the perceptions of sexual harassment among female students at two higher education institutions in Mexico. Specifically, it seeks to contribute to the debate over sexual harassment by evaluating the prevalence of the phenomenon and offering prevention strategies. We conducted a transversal and descriptive study, through a survey applied to 901 women at the Instituto Politecnico Nacional (IPN) and 266 female students at a Federal Technological Institute. In the conclusions to our study, we recommend specific confrontation strategies that both institutions could adopt in cases of sexual harassment.
