What is it’s just my word against the harasser’s? Can I still win a sexual harassment case?
Yes. It is widely understood that sexual harassment most often occurs when the perpetrator is alone with the victim. This is referred to as “he said/she said” cases. The biggest factor on which winning usually depends, is who is more credible, the perpetrator or the victim. Although credibility is the biggest factor, we can bolster the evidence against the perpetrator by calling on witnesses who have also been harassed by the perpetrator; this is called “me too” evidence.
