The new book Sex in the Office traces changing views of white-collar women through history, starting decades before working women were commonplace, and before the term “sexual harassment” had even been coined. As author Julie Berebitsky point out, sexuality in the office has almost always been viewed as a threat, but the nature of that threat has changed through the decades. The New York Post compiled a timeline of major moments in the history of sex in the office, based on the book. Here are 10 of them, from the movie theater to the courtroom, drawn from the Post’s time line and augmented with a few more recent examples of our own.
