More than one in three American women—35%—say they have been sexually harassed at work, according to a new survey conducted by Marist University for NPR and PBS. Almost 30% of women and men told pollsters they had personally witnessed one of their co-workers being sexually harassed.
Older workers were more likely to say they had been harassed. Twenty-six percent of Americans age 45 and older say they have experienced sexual harassment at work, compared to 18% of workers under 45.
On the other hand, most workers, 87%, believe their employers have adequate safeguards to protect employees from harassment.
