dc.description.abstract One in four women has experienced workplace sexual harassment, this ABC News/Washington Post poll finds. One in 10 men say they’ve experienced it as well–and a quarter of men say they worry about being falsely accused of sexual harassment. With harassment allegations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain dominating the headlines, this survey, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, shows the extent to which the subject resonates in the personal experiences and concerns of many Americans. Overall, 64 percent see sexual harassment as a problem in this country, soaring to 88 percent of women who’ve been harassed. Still, the overall number is far below its peak, 85 percent, in late 1992. That was a year after the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, accused of harassment by former co-worker Anita Hill; and during the sexual misconduct scandal that forced then Sen. Bob Packwood, R-Oregon, from office. [CVRL Note: question text and full results provided at end of the document.] (Press Release Text) en_US
