More than a third of women have been sexually harassed at work in the last 12 months despite the MeToo movement shining a spotlight on the problem, according to a new survey.
The survey by law firm Slater and Gordon found 37 per cent say they have experienced harassment and 39 per cent have witnessed colleagues being abused.
One in four (28 per cent) claim they have a predatory male colleague or boss who uses his position to prey on female members of staff.
Slater and Gordon spoke to 2,000 women for the study, which shows suggestive or inappropriate comments or behaviour were still the most common experiences, but 11 per cent had experienced sexually explicit or sexist conduct and six per cent said the had been groped.
A similar poll carried out this time last year showed more than half of women (51 per cent) had been sexually harassed at work but were often too scared to speak out.
