The Prevalence, Antecedents and Consequences of Sexual Harassment in the Myanmar Workplace
- The primary purpose of this study was to explore female workers experiences of sexual harassment and the antecedents and the outcomes of those experiences in the Myanmar workplace. Using the Myanmar versions of Sexual Experiences Questionnaire developed originally by Fitzgerald and colleagues (1988, 1995), a questionnaire survey of working women in Myanmar was conducted. The representative sample included 271 working Myanmar women at a university, along with government and private sectors. The antecedent variables (personal vulnerability, organizational context) and three general types of negative outcome variables (psychological outcomes, physical outcomes, and work-related outcomes) were identified through victims of sexual harassment. Analyses explored the relationship of these antecedents and negative outcomes to type of sexual harassment, and the victim's coping responses. In addition, the influences of self-role belief and attribution style were explored.
