Attention to sexual harassment at workplace is a new phenomenon which has been the focus of researchers since the 1970s. There are many models and theories to explain sexual causes, most of which have socio-cultural, biological and personality roots,as well as organizational and cognitive origins. Recently, a multi-factor model has combined all factors to investigate this phenomenon. In this article, we have conducted in-depth interviews with 31 sexual harassment victims (with age groups ranging from 23 to 47). Applying the Snowball Method, the study found what the members of the focus group described their experiences and it analyzed the sexual harassment based on patterns and theories. In response to causes of sexual harassment, the findings of this study show that biological, social, cultural, organizational, and cognitive factors are effective but not sufficient in themselves and a multifactorial pattern can be used to explain the influential variables of this phenomenon.
