Jude Terna Kur    

Abstract: The survey of female undergraduates of mass communication in South-East Nigerian Universities aimed at determining the targets, perpetrators and effects of sexual harassment on the harassed. It used a sample of 240 final year undergraduates drawn through simple random sampling. Findings suggest that targets of sexual harassment are younger in age, single of low and average academic statuses and of parents of low socio-economic status. The perpetrators are mostly senior academics. Sexual harassment adversely affects the academic well-being of the harassed. The findings support Feminist Theory that sexual harassment is an exercise of power. It is recommended among others that a policy against sexual harassment be formulated in mass communication departments of universities and other institutions of higher learning.
