It’s officially summer and as we trade our heavy jackets for shorts, skirts, and tanks, we are forced to take on daily the load of crap infamously known as cat calling, street harassment and sexually explicit comments. We have heard them all, “Ohhhhwee Baby! How you doin?” or “Mmmm girl you are fine!” and how about the infamous “Aren’t your feet tired? Because you have been running in my mind allll day!” Ok granted the last one may have been replaced these days with something way more tawdry making me personally feel like I’m a dime store hoochie, but the fact is that while ... market research, surveys and trends
Q&A: Homophobia and sexual harassment at work - from Pink News ...
Got a problem with homophobia or sexual harassment at work? Law firm Russell Jones & Walker answers three common questions about how the law protects you and what you can do. I am gay and feel uncomfortable at work as my boss (who is also gay) keeps making sexually inappropriate comments towards me and is very tactile around me in the office.

This appears to be harassment of a sexual nature and is therefore prohibited under the Sex Discrimination Act (SDA), which ... market research, surveys and trends


Four of 10 women say they have encountered unwanted sexual advances or remarks from men they work for, but very few of them say they reported the incident at the time, according to the latest New York Times/ CBS News poll. The poll suggests that sexual harassment, even if largely unreported, is a pervasive problem in the workplace. Five of 10 men said that at some point while on the job, they had said or done something that could have been construed by a female colleague as harassment. A majority of the men and women responding to the poll said they believed that suggestive comments could constitute sexual harassment -- that ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Life wasn't meant to be sleazy
For most women subject to sexual harassment at work, the old rules still apply. They grin and bear it, and when it gets too much they quit. They work in small business and shops and male-dominated offices, and they lack the confidence to make their complaint public. If it were not for women such as Kristy Fraser-Kirk, who has taken David Jones to court, sexual harassment would remain an abstraction, its sordid details hidden from public view, or buried in secret conciliation sessions behind closed doors. Every cause needs brave people to take a stand and fight for their rights, otherwise rights are eroded for everyone. Most ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Feministe Feedback: Recourse for sexual harassment at work
I work for a reputable medical school in central Texas, in the IT department. My department has expanded beyond the space we have in our office, so they moved three of us to a satellite office, for space reasons. I (the sole female techie) and two men were the ones moved. I didn’t see a problem with this, as they had to move someone and they stated the technicians they were moving were the ones they could trust to work in a more unsupervised setting. It was working out fine until August 4, 2010. One of the coworkers in my tiny office, a married man in his late 40’s/early 50’s and I were talking about current ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
