48% of women claim harassment

Nearly half of all female workers say they’ve experienced sexual harassment at work, according to a poll from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. “Some 48% of female workers responded ‘yes’ when asked if they had personally experienced [sexual harassment],” Louise Radnofsky writes in the Wall Street Journal. In addition, 38 percent said that they thought they were paid less than their male counterparts, and 37 percent said their perspective was ignored because of their gender.

Female workers were not the only ones to perceive sex discrimination at work. “Some 41% of currently employed men said they had witnessed a woman receive an unwelcome sexual advance. … Among employed men, 32% said they personally had seen a woman be paid less than a man for the same work, and 29% said they had seen a woman’s viewpoint rejected because of her gender.” More here.
