I'm looking for affirmation that I am right; I'm in a sticky situation at work.
Question: Am I right?

Ok, so the short version of the situation is this:
I have a great job, it is in a stressful environment. It is challenging but rewarding. It pays very well, and has great perks....I have a 6 year old and I try to only let her know about the good things about working outside of the home.....
the sticky situation is that there is a co-worker of mine (female) who is mis-treating me and harassing me. I am not the first co-worker that she has done this to. There are at least 6 others that I know of. Her track record is that she will move onto her next target soon, there has been some new hires and I have been her target for a year now.
I have been approached by management 2 times, in regards to how this is affecting me. Different managers, different approaches. They say they can do nothing unless I speak up.
Coworkers of mine have gone to management to tell them that they themselves are uncomfortable with my treatment by this co-worker, but they themselves are unwilling to come forward against her as well.
I have resources made available to me through my employer to help me deal with this situation. EAP, counseling, etc.
My feeling is this: She is a bad employee and it is Management's responcibility to deal with her, not to put me up to making an official complaint about her. Management has failed to address her behavioural issues and now the situation has snowballed.
Some shifts I feel like Schrodinger's Cat.
