29% will quit if employers do not take steps to address sexual harassment

As more women begin to speak up about their past experiences of being sexually harassed in the entertainment industry, the same cannot be said in the common workplace. There are no new substantial steps being taken to assist women who might be sexually harassed.

According to a study done by the American Psychological Association,  29% of respondents said that they are more likely to leave my place of employment if it does not take steps to address sexual harassment. Giving attention to the issue has shown to be helpful in changing the attitude of workers towards sexual harassment in a positive direction.

After the increased media attention on sexual harassment, 51% now agree that they are more likely to report sexual harassment if they witness it happening to others at work. While 50% said they are now more likely to report sexual harassment if they experience it themselves.
