This investigation examined the impact of genderand culture on reactions to sexual harassment charges.Specifically, we explored the degree of the punishmentrecommended in response to allegations of sexual harassment in an academic context. NorthAmerican (n = 330, average age = 20.57 years, 90%Caucasian) and Brazilian (n = 214, average age = 21.62years, 95% Caucasian) undergraduates read a fictitiousnewspaper article that described an alleged case of sexualharassment involving a male instructor and a femaleundergraduate. The alleged perpetrator's power, hisprofessed romantic interest in the target, and the salience of discrimination concerns weremanipulated. Participants rated the degree to which hisactions were punishable. Overall, women and NorthAmericans advocated more punishment to the allegedharasser than men and Brazilians, respectively.Conditions that increase or reduce the punishment ratingsare discussed.
