The Prevalence of Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is always in the news in the US.  But the US is not alone in having a problem.  In the past week to ten days, there have been numerous news stories about international sexual harassment issues.  Topping the list are sexual harassment claims against members of the Israeli government.  The Israeli Justice Minister and Israeli President are both under investigation for separate incidents of sexual harassment.  In the Czech Republic, a new study found that one-quarter of their workers were the victim of sexual harassment.  And women in India and the Cayman Islands are pushing for increased protection.

The increased news of sexual harassment leads to many questions.  Is sexual harassment becoming more frequent, both here and abroad?  Or, is harassment merely being reported more as women’s rights increase on a global scale?  Does (or should) the fact that sexual harassment occurs on a global scale affect how we address sexual harassment claims at home?  Certainly food for thought for those interested in the prevention of discrimination.
