ABSTRACT. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from Bucknell Institute for Public Policy, Pew Research Center, PRRI, SourceMedia Research, and YouGov, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding percentage who would vote for candidates accused of sexual harassment by political affiliation and gender, things that need to change to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace, percentage of those in science, technology, engineering and math jobs who say that they have ever experienced gender discrimination at work, their gender has made it harder to succeed at work, and sexual harassment is a problem in their workplace, percentage saying the increased focus on sexual harassment and assault has made it harder/not much difference/easier for men to know how to interact with women in the workplace, and proportion who think that, in the future, the #MeToo movement will (not) lead to more men being fired or punished at their jobs unfairly.

Keywords: #MeToo movement; sexual harassment; gender-based workplace discrimination
