ABSTRACT. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from Bucknell Institute for Public Policy, Harvard Business Review, Pew Research Center, Statista, and YouGov, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding percentage saying they have ever personally received unwanted sexual advances or verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature, share of harassed women experiencing behaviors such as staring or leering, making suggestive comments, trying to discuss sex, displaying offensive images, repeatedly asking out, trying to start a sexual relationship, and/or unwanted touching, percentage who claim that, in the future, the #MeToo movement will (not) empower more women to come forward with allegations of sexual harassment, percentage saying men getting away with sexual harassment/assault, women not being believed, employers firing accused men before finding out all the facts, and women falsely claiming sexual harassment/assault are all major problems when it comes to sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, and share of employees who reported the sexual harassment at their workplace to management or pursued a legal action.

Keywords: sexual harassment; #MeToo; gendered inequality; hostile work environment
