One Third of Women Report Harassment

December 09, 2009

In a totally depressing article, the Daily Mail reports that one third of women in the UK claim they have experienced sexual harassment at the workplace. Some lowlights:

  • 14 percent are “dreading” going to their holiday party because they’ll have to dodge a drunk and/or handsy coworker
  • 20 percent say they have had to fend off a coworker’s sexual advances
  • 5 percent report that they have quit a job because the office harassment was so bad
  • 32 percent say that they have experienced harassment in the form of lewd “humor” or inappropriate jokes

However, that’s not the only disheartening thing about this article. The recommended reading link in the middle of the article links to something entitled “Moody, indecisive, and trying to act like a man, why ladies make truly lousy bosses.” Seriously? I have two things to say to the author of that piece: one, it’s called a colon and you should try using one, and two, shut up.
