Abstract

This paper presents a gender analysis of sexual harassment in nightlife environments based on bystanders’ perceptions and the evaluation of the implementation of the Sexism Free Night label in Oporto. By using a web survey (N=546) we found that, according to bystanders, sexual harassment is very prevalent in nightlife environments. These data informed the implementation of a label based on the involvement of managers (n=7) and the training of the staff of the nightlife establishments participating in the project (n=46). The results demonstrate that nightlife environments are key settings for the prevention of and intervention in situations of sexual harassment.
