Keep in mind that sexual harassment is legally defined as something more than just being hit on. You have to tell them to leave you alone in no uncertain terms at least once to have a real case of harassment. All too often, women complain formally without ever having done that first.

"Although the law doesn't prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted)."
