Half of women have suffered sexual harassment in the workplace, study finds
Over half of all female of employees have suffered some form of sexual harassment in the workplace, new research suggests.
Out of 3,434 women workers who took part in a study conducted by legal experts at AdviseMeBarrister.com, 1,760 said they had experienced harassment at work because of their gender, including offensive sexist remarks and being the butt of chauvinist jokes.
Two-thirds of women who have experienced harassment at work said their boss or other male colleagues had made inappropriate comments about what they are wearing, while 43 per cent have been sworn at by colleagues and the same percentage propositioned in a manner which made them feel awkward.
