Abstract:  Little research has examined the relationship between ideology and perceptions of sexual harassment, with the primary focus toward believing victims and men getting away with harassment in the workplace. Recognizing differences in the way in which sexual harassment and assault were discussed on political programming and social media by partisans, we posed the following questions: 1) Is there an ideological difference in perceptions of observed sexual harassment? and 2) Is there also an ideological difference in perceptions of personally experienced sexual harassment? Using data from two studies, we find that conservatives are less likely than liberals to perceive and label both ambiguous and non-ambiguous situations as sexual harassment. Our third study, comprised of adult women, demonstrates that compared to liberal women, conservative women report significantly fewer instances of personally experienced gender discrimination and sexual harassment than liberal women. Taken together, these results indicate that both observed and lived experiences with sexual harassment are linked to one’s ideological belief structures.  Differences in one’s likelihood of identifying and labeling certain events as sexual harassment have broad implications for policy support and political attitudes, particularly if these differences are conditional upon political ideology.
