Although sexual harrassment was once a topic discussed so rarely as to be almost taboo, it now is subject to much analysis. Books and articles in magazines and professional journals have helped define the parameters of the problem, treating it both as a sociological phenomenon and as a legal issue. Articles discussing the legal aspects of sexual harassment tend to concentrate exclusively on the arsenal of litigation weapons available to a potential plaintiff, despite the fact that the vast majority of women who experience harassment will choose not to sue, and those who do will often wait years before they are compensated. Although sexual harassment is frequently a cause of women's unemployment, one avenue of relatively immediate, partial redress which has been commonly overlooked is unemployment compensation.
