Avictim of harassment need not always confront her harasser directlyso long as her conduct demonstrates the harasser's behavior isunwelcome. See, e.g., Lipsett v. University ofPuerto Rico, 864 F.2d 881, 898, 48 EPD ¶ 38,393(1st Cir. 1988) ("In some instances a woman may have theresponsibility for telling the man directly that his comments orconduct is unwelcome. In other instances, however, a women'sconsistent failure to respond to suggestive comments or gesturesmay be sufficient to communicate that the man's conduct isunwelcome"); Commission Decision No. 84-1, CCH Decisions¶ 6839 (although charging parties did not confront theirsupervisor directly about his sexual remarks and gestures for fearof losing their jobs, evidence showing that they demonstratedthrough comments and actions that his conduct was unwelcome wassufficient to support a finding of harassment).
