sexual harassment in the workplace
Our report, published with the Everyday Sexism Project, is one of the most extensive pieces of research on the issue in Europe. And for the first time in the UK, the study includes a large enough sample to be representative of experience of black, Asian and minority ethnic women - and rates of sexual harassment of BAME women were similarly high, with more than half (52%) being sexually harassed at work. We found that nearly one in three women have been subject to unwelcome jokes of a sexual nature and that more than one in four women have been on the receiving end of comments of a sexual nature about their body or clothes at work.
In an ideal world, stuff like this wouldn't be happening. I know that might be too much to ask, no one can control what people say. Just respect the staff of the places you visit. Stop harassing them if they are clearly not interested, and for the love of God leave the 16 year olds alone, making them uncomfortable is far from a joke. Respect the staff. That isn't too much to ask.
