#nonotallmen but #yesallwomen1 An analysis on how men perceive sexual street harassment
MetadataShow full item record
With this thesis, I aim present a non-exhaustive perception on sexual street harassment from men’s point of view. Using the theory of rape culture, sexism, gendered power relations, male domination in the public space, hegemonic masculinity and homosociality I lay out groundwork to fathom how sexual street harassment persists. In order to gain a deeper understanding of male perception on the matter, I have used both quantitative – a survey – and qualitative – interviews – as research methods. Because my research is ground within feminist methodology, I have decided to work with feminist standpoint theory. Further, I present an analysis of the information gathered from the interviews, cut into five separate sections, all linking back the theory presented. Finally, in the conclusion, I answer my research question along with the three sub-questions using the analysis of the interviews and reminisce on the theories.
