Women are Saying No to Sexual Harassment

October 12th, 2017

Philadelphia Sexual Harassment Lawyers: Women are Saying No to Sexual HarassmentIn 2016, a British study revealed that more than half of the women surveyed had been sexually harassed at work. Even today, however, many women never report this injustice. That may be because women have been conditioned for a long time to remain professional. Therefore, women who have been sexually harassed tend to tolerate their bullies, rather than stand up for themselves as they may believe that their careers are on the line.

In recent years, however, women have been fighting back. More women now report cases of sexual harassment than ever before. The more women who report are empowering other women to do the same. A recent high-profile example involves the entertainer Taylor Swift, who sued a former DJ who groped her. The jury awarded her a symbolic one-dollar award, which fulfilled her goal of being an example for other women.

Swift is not the only one filing suits against sexual harassment as recent news substantiates the fact that more women are coming forward. For example, 20th Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, paid out approximately $50 million that covered sexual harassment and discrimination settlements to women who were employed by the company. The number is growing and stands as an encouraging factor to promote women to stand up and defend themselves against sexual harassment.
