Title “It Happens All the Time” : Women’s Experiences and Normalization of Sexual Harassment in Public Space
Author Mellgren, Caroline ; Andersson, Mika ; Ivert, Anna-Karin

English abstract
This study explored the prevalence of sexual harassment, consequences of harassment, and reasons for not reporting these experiences through a survey among Swedish female university students (N = 1941). One fourth reported one or more incidents of sexual harassment during the 12 months period prior to the survey. Victims were more often younger and with Swedish-born parents compared with nonvictims. Victimization most frequently occurred at clubs or restaurants and the most frequently reported consequences were anger and worry about being victimized again. Few reported the incidents to the police making this, in part, an invisible problem.
