June 2018 – Recent accusations against prominent men in American culture have brought attention to the issue of sexual harassment. Awareness of sexual misconduct in the workplace raises questions about what lies ahead for men and women who work together. It also gives rise to the #MeToo movement in which mostly women share their stories of being sexually harassed in an effort to show the magnitude of the issue.
A Pew Research Center survey found that concerns about workplace sexual harassment vary greatly along political party lines. About six in ten Democrats say a major problem exists with men getting away with sexual harassment (62%) and women not being believed when they claim they have experienced it (60%). However, only 33% of Republicans see men getting away with it as a major problem, and 28% say the same about women
not being believed.
