Keywords: sexual harassment | dominant ideology | organizational culture | critical theory | Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

The present study endeavors to give a description of a famous case of sexual harassment at the workplace (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission vs. Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing of America) and critique it in terms of its embedment of an intertwined relationship between two pervasive ideologies prevalent in our society: patriarchy and consumerism. By focusing on the favorable conditions, ways of resolution, and outcomes of the lawsuit, this essay approaches the organizational culture of Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing of America through the lens of critical theory. Selective literature review on sexual harassment, as well as general coverage of the event by the media and the parties involved demonstrate the validity of the claim that this study has made.
