Tired of Having More Questions Than Answers?Women spend thousands on college degrees, entering their chosen field with mounds of student loan debt. They think, “Wow, I’m thankful this corporation gave me the opportunity to use my education and grow.” Unfortunately, an ulterior motive exists: employer unknowingly hired their next sexual assault victim, and they’re complicit to this activity because they know the perpetrators. The EEOC conducted an extensive study on sexual harassment in 2016. They found:
- Women in construction, because they’re seen as ‘interlopers’, are harassed more than others
- Service-based employees where money is made off gratuity see an equally high amount of sexual assault and harassment
- Low wage-earning women, who lack pushback power, experience high harassment rates
- When women reported these incidents, 75% of employers retaliated
- Roughly 60% of women who reported sexual harassment were victims of cruel jokes or coercion (cat calling, for one).
