By Jessica Rinaldi/The American ConservativeMore than 40 percent of millennials believe they’ve experienced a “sexually hostile workplace” in the past year, according to a new study by the Human Rights Campaign.
In the study, released Wednesday, the advocacy group found that 41 percent of young women surveyed felt unsafe at work in 2015, and more than one-third of millennials surveyed said they were harassed by co-workers or supervisors.
“Millennials are increasingly questioning their worth in the workplace, and they are questioning how much work is actually necessary to be safe,” said Lauren W. Smith, director of the HRC’s Center on Workplace Equality.
“It’s not just a question of being physically and verbally aggressive, but also the fact that there’s a pervasive culture that reinforces the idea that you don’t matter, that you’re not valuable.”
The study found that the percentage of millennials who said they’ve been physically or verbally assaulted at work also increased significantly over the past two decades, from 21 percent in 1990 to 40 percent in 2015.
The study also found that about a third of millennials said they felt unsafe in their work environment in 2015 because of a sexual orientation or gender identity.
While sexual harassment has become a hot-button issue among lawmakers and the general public, there is no single number to determine whether it is a problem among millennial workers.
While research has found that workplace harassment in the United States is on the rise, few have pinpointed the cause.
In a 2016 survey of nearly 1,200 U.S. workers, researchers found that sexual harassment was a pervasive issue among millennial respondents, with more than half saying they felt pressured or intimidated by coworkers in the course of their work.
But the report did not identify which types of sexual harassment occurred.
A survey of 2,000 young people by the nonprofit American Thinker found that, while only 26 percent of respondents said they had experienced sexual harassment, 44 percent said they’d been harassed in the last year.
More than half of the women surveyed said their co-worker’s actions or behavior made them feel unsafe at their workplace.
The American Society of Civil Engineers released a report in April that found that more than 20 percent of millennial women and more or less half of millennial men were sexually harassed at work.
The report found that women make up a disproportionate share of sexual harassers.
The HRC study, however, found that “sexual harassment is a pervasive and pervasive problem” among millennial women.
It also found widespread acceptance among younger women for sexual harassment.
“While sexual assault and harassment are a major problem for many women, it is often invisible to many of us,” said Emily Zuckerman, director for HRC’s Workplace and Workplace Justice.
“There is an awareness that sexual assault is a serious issue and that it is something that women must be willing to discuss.”
