This week, the government released an exhaustive survey related to sexual assault, rape, and domestic violence. It produced staggering statistics, which suggest that sexual assault and rape are more prevalent in our society than previously thought.
Nearly one in five women surveyed had been raped or had experienced an attempted rape. Between 1 and 2 percent of men said they had been raped.
For many women and even some men, these issues stretch into the workplace. On a day to day basis, many individuals are plagued by sexually-charged work environments that they cannot escape, or feel they cannot escape without financially jeopardizing themselves or their families. This happens all too often, and is reported all too frequently.
