ABSTRACT. This research synthesizes existing studies and investigates workplace sexual harassment in the wake of #MeToo. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from Bucknell Institute for Public Policy, GEH, Pew Research Center, Raliance, Statista, Stop Street Harassment, and YouGov, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding persons whom women reported as perpetrators of sexual harassment and assault, percentage of employed women in a workplace with more women than men/more men than women saying that sexual harassment is a problem in their industry/workplace and that they have personally experienced sexual harassment, and percentage who think that, in the future, the #MeToo movement will (not) lead to the growing segregation of men and women in the workplace.

Keywords: workplace sexual harassment; #MeToo; gender discrimination; toxic masculinity
