More Men Reporting Sexual Harassment

According to the EEOC more men are filing sexual harassment complaints then in years past. Cases filed by men made up 15.4 percent of the sexual harassment charges in 2006, compared to 14.3 percent in 2005 and 11.6 percent a decade ago. Although the statistics don’t indicate whether the harasser was male or female, EEOC officials do indicate that claims against female harassers are very rare.

This increase in claims may be due in part to the fact that more men are finding the sexual toned horseplay of earlier times unacceptable and understand they have legal rights to stop this behavior. Source.
