Heads up: African-American, Asian and Hispanic women are more likely to file sexual harassment charges than in the past, according to a National Partnership for Women & Families study of data from the EEOC and state fair-employment agencies.
The study says that sexual harassment charges filed by white women have climbed by 5 percent in the past decade. Over that same period, claims by African-American women rose 42 percent; claims by Asian women climbed 100 percent; and claims by Hispanic women jumped by 120 percent.
Note: White women still file the greatest number of sexual harassment claims (3,721 claims last year). The second-highest number: 907 charges by African-American women.
