#Mentoo: Sexual harassment is not just a female problem

Article here. Excerpt:

'Paula McDonald at Queensland University of Technology and Sara Charlesworth at RMIT University analysed all 282 formal complaints of sexual harassment in Australia during a six-month period. Almost four out of five – 78 per cent – involved a man sexually harassing a woman.

The next largest category was men harassed by men (11 per cent), then women by women (5.7 per cent) and men by women (5 per cent).

Some female harassers behave in ways associated with "toxic masculinity" to get ahead in the boys' club.

One male journalist disclosed how he was sexually harassed by an alpha female: a trailblazing national news and current affairs host. "She kept crossing her legs on my lap, and draping herself across me," he says.'
