Elizabeth Broderick, Sex Discrimination Commissioner, today launched Working without fear: Results of the sexual harassment national telephone survey 2012, which shows that sexual harassment is not only widespread in Australian workplaces, but that progress in addressing it has stalled. The report reveals that just over one in five people (21%) were sexually harassed in the workplace in the past five years, and that workplace sexual harassment is a particular problem for women.
